  1. May I know is that a way to input the font size manually instead of choosing preset font size?

    Hi, There's an error here in Arabic language file:

    "font":{"fontSize":{"label":"حجم الخط","voiceLabel":"حجم الخط","panelTitle":"حجم الخط"},"label":"خط","panelTitle":"حجم الخط","voiceLabel":"حجم الخط"},

    it should be like this:

    "font":{"fontSize":{"label":"حجم الخط","voiceLabel":"حجم الخط","panelTitle":"حجم الخط"},"label":"نوع خط","panelTitle":"نوع الخط","voiceLabel":"نوع الخط"},

    cause the second parametre is for Family not for Size, and it should be written (نوع الخط) = (Font Type wich mean font-family).

    • Hi Salah,

      Thank you for spotting this. CKEditor localization is done at Transifex, could you please join us there are make the correction? No one in the team speaks Arabic, so it would really be better if someone more qualified made this change :) Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi,

    I am using CKEditor 4.4.3 full version from CDN.

    There seems issue with font size. If I select some text with font size = 11 in editor then it seems to be around 8.5 px. To confirm when I copy that text from ckeditor into word document or email body then it shows text to be 8.5px  only.

    Please tell me how this can be fixed, font size 11 in editor should be equal to 11 in word doc or email clients.

    Looing forward to hear on this.


  4. I'm seeing deprecated <font> tags and maybe others and am assuming that it's caused my this plugin because it contains the font-family names 

    <font face="Raleway, Open Sans, sans-serif">

    Is there a way to instead use a span tag with style rather than the deprecated font tag? Thank you.

  5. In the font size drop down menu, the font sizes are displayed in their actual sizees. It doesn't look good when the font sizes are very big. Large sizes do not fit in the menu width. See the attached screenshot.


    What can I do so that the font sizes do not display in their actual sizes?

    I use ckedtior in a web page, when I summit the content, the font family and font size become the preset, how can I retain the font family and font size after I summit the content

    Please advice.

    If I have 2 fonts with the same family name - for example Arial Regular and Arial Bold. How can I know what font is being used by default and how can I tell to use Arial Regular for the regular text and Arial Bold for the bold text? 

    Thank you!

        Thank you for your quick answer, Anna.

        Unfortunately I am not sure I founded an answer in the your link.

        I know I can write list names for one row, but it still leaves me with the question – how can I manage between them, according to user’s choice.
