Outside of Bold and Italics, there is no way I know of to change the font of part of a text field. All the text in the field will be governed by the settings in the style file. You can set the size smaller to start with. You can add extra blank lines after the text to fill the box and force it to shrink. Either way, all the text in a particular field will be a consistent size.
That's very silly. Is there anything simple that can be done about that, or is it just the way MSE is created?

As far as I know, that's the way it's made. It doesn't have word processor-type functions. The individual text boxes are governed by their settings in the style file. @bmaczero knows way more about this program than me. Maybe there's a way to do what you want.

I'm not overly worried about it, I suppose. Maybe I am. But if he sees this and wants to offer advice, I'll leave that to him, I won't bug anyone about it. Might do some hunting on the MSE site too. Thanks for the help!

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

Text box would be pretty simple. You'll need to define the text box in the game file then set the parameters in the style file for the card style you will be using. I'll copy some examples to a text file and post it for you.

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

Here's the link to the text file with the basic instructions.

Here's an example of what the text box looks like. Its the "mac122" going vertical just to the right of the abilities text. The "mac122" logo on the bottom right was added in a little bit different manner. It could be done very similarly to the text box, just creating an image field instead. Most of the steps are exactly the same.



Edit: I recommend saving a copy of your style and game files before making any changes. A bit of protection should something get messed up.

Mac is there any way you could download a file with the values to add a field to the triangular box above the "species" box on the Marvel style cards. I read through your instruction but feel a little overwhelmed trying to figure it all out. I appreciate any help you can offer.

Are you using the standard cards that came with the MSE download? Also, do you want a text field or an image field?

Yes a text box in the triangle shaped box. See a CG3 card as a example.
