Helvetica 65 medium previewing and publishing bold in SL 3

Apr 16, 2018


I opened a SL2 story in SL3 (and backed up the SL2 version), did a few edits and then previewed. The original used Helvetica 65 medium font (client's request) thorughout. In SL2, the font publishes as intended. In SL3, the font previews and publishes larger and in heavy  bold. 

I've seen other issues similarly throughout the boards for different fonts, but nothing on Helvetica 65 medium. Is this a bug, or is this the way SL3 is going to handle this and other fonts when importing from previous versions of SL?

Thank you for any input.

Hi Alyssa,

Thank you so much for your response. I just saw it today, when I returned to the discussion boards to see if any one else had the same issue, since I didn't receive your response through email.  And there you were!

You are a hero! Yes, this solved the problem in SL3. I did not have "use modern text" selected. Once I selected it, it displayed correctly. In SL2, this option is not displaying, so I didn't even tink to consider it.  Was "use modern text" an addition to SL3?

Thank you so  much again!
