"Bates Numbering..." ignoring selected font size

Post by ChalkyW64 » Sat May 08, 2021 6:00 pm

In version 2.1.0 of FlexiPDF I am trying to add formatted page numbers via the "Bates Numbering..." menu:

1. I add my file
2. I specify an output folder
3. I add [PAGENUM] for the footer centre field
4. I click the link next to "Font and Colour:"
5. I change the values from their default ("Arial, 12.0 pts") to "Times New Roman, 6.0 pts"
6. I click OK

A new PDF is created with page numbers in the centre of the footer with a typeface of "Times New Roman, 12.0 pts".

I'm assuming this is a bug as no matter which typeface/size I specify, the typeface is applied in the new pdf but the font size is always "12.0".

One of the main reasons I bought FlexiPDF 2019 was for its merging and page numbering functionality, so I really need a fix (or workaround) for this asap.

Other than via this forum, can someone please advise me how I can bring this issue to the attention of the development team?

I managed to raise a support ticket with SoftMaker and have just received confirmation from them that this is a reproducible bug which has now been reported to the developers.
