I need to create a form using smartform.
The problem is, the spacing between words are too wide for my form comparing to the original paper form.
I am using the same font (Times) as the original, but the spacing between words in my new form is much wider than the original one, resulting in a single line sentence in the original form overflow into second line in my new form.
I cannot find any setting to reduce the distances between words (not individual characters)
How can I do it, anybody can help on this?
"use &ekpo-ebeln(C)& it is for reducing the space..."
I do not understand &ekpo-ebeln(C)&, is this field a standard field or i need to declare it at the global variable? Does it contain all the text in my form?
I have tried condense, condense is to reduce the space between words to 1 space.
No-gaps doesn't help, it removed all the spaces between my words and making them unreadable.
it seems that my words are already having 1 space in between, except the width of the one space is big, So the problem is how do I reduce the width of the space?
For example, the gap between my words are 2mm, how do i reduce it to 1mm?
I have tried the style. The character per inch only used to calculate the length if i use character for calculation.
I found out a work around, which is to set the tab to 1mm, then instead of using space after typing each word, i use tab... but this is very tedious, anybody knows the correct way to reduce the space?
I appreicate your help to try and find a solution to this problem.
As I have mentioned earlier, CPI is not useful, it does not change anything even if i set it to 50 CPI. I believed the problem is my page format is using DINA4, it is using MM as unit, not characters. I cannot change to other format as my client printer is using this.
The help file on CPI said it is used for calculating absolute distant. I have paste the explaination below.
[Quote] Number of characters per inch (CPI) in the form. If the unit "characters" is used for horizontal length entries in the definition of the form or style, the absolute length is calculated from this value.
Example: If the first line of a paragraph has an indent of "5 characters" and the CPI value of the form is 10, the indent of the first line is 1/2 inch in absolute units.[/Quote]
Therefore I would appreciate to those who suggest changing CPI in the future will be able to give me a working example?
The spacing in the paragraph format is for the space between the lines, not between words. The space before and after is the distance before and after a paragraph and the page, like an indent.
Go to the smart style u have chosen( goto smart forms
>global settings>output options
here u can find style.
go to Transaction smart forms select the radio button style give the name of ur style
Go to Header data-->standard settings
here u can find characters per inch
try modifying this
keep 12 or more char per inch
