Font Sizes

Hello everyone!

I was wondering if you can add more than one font size to the epub file to later view on your eread (kobo in my case)?

I'm not all that good with html coding so your help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!


PS. I love Sigil! =)

Font sizes are generally something left to the reader (the software and the user). The book proper should not include any specific font size, other than relative sizes (things like "chapter titles at twice the normal font size").

Thanks for responding Jellby!

I wish it was like that, because my ereader supports different sizes, but whenever I input a book i've edited with sigil, I can no longer change the font size with my kobo when reading =( that's why I asked and was hoping maybe someone knew how to.

But if there's nothing I can do than that's ok. Thanks for your help though! =)

That sounds very, very weird. I can't think of anything that would cause that. Could you provide one such epub book that was processed by Sigil and whose font size now can't be changed on your kobo reader?

You can attach it to a post in this thread or better yet, create a new issue on the tracker and attach it there.

More information here.
