I was wondering if there is anyway to set font name and size dynamically?

Thank you Migueil for your answer and a work around as well but I was looking for something dynamic.

You're welcome. The use of "pasteRtf()" is done from Code. What's not dynamic about it?

The rte has some functions and attributes that would suggest being able to set the font. However, I've never seen them work in the later versions of PB.

What you could do is manually set the font you need in an empty rte and then maybe write a single space.

Then you call copyRTF() to get the rtf syntax.

That will give you the code (take out the space character) to paste with pasteRtf() and in that way you can set the font.
