Hi Mark, I have found that the font size displays incorrectly in Phil 2:10 halfway thru the verse after...EVERY KNEE WILL BOW...the font shrinks to almost half the size displayed before the caps, and all the following verses until the end of the chapter do the same. But this only happens when the Strong's notes are disabled. In other words the font size is correct with Strong's turned on! I am using 4.1.0

I am very impressed with Mantis products, keep up the good work.

Thanks, Doug

My copy isn't doing that, so it's possible you have an older version of the NASS. You can get the updated copy right away. Just find the NASS in the bookshelf screen, swipe your finger over it, then tap "Delete" to delete it. Then download it again and you'll have the latest version.

My version does the same Ver 4.1 and freshly downloaded NASS w/Strongs. After "EVERY KNEE WILL BOW" the font drops a point or two for the rest of the chapter.

This reminds me of another similar anomaly - almost everywhere that the OT is quoted and the text is in caps, the font size changes within the quote, sometimes up and down several times. Shall I send you some screenshots to show what I am seeing?

Looks like my eyes aren't as good as they used to be :) I just wasn't seeing it, but you were right -- it was still a problem.

It is now fixed -- delete and re-download the NASS and you'll get the fixed version.

Well that fixed the Phillipians issue. Now look at Hebrews 1:5-14. With Strongs off, after the quote in verse 5 two things happen: the regular text font size drops a point or two, and the quote becomes all caps instead of lower case caps like it is other places.

This may be unrelated, but I think that mix between all caps and lower case caps in the OT quotes is what is making these look odd.

I have removed all the small caps entries from that chapter -- I'm not sure why they were used like that, but it looks much better now. You can download the new version immediately.

That's much better! Can you do that (get rid of the lower case caps) universally or do you need to manually change each instance of the OT quotes?

It could be done universally, but there may be instances where we need to keep the small caps, such as where it's used for LORD.

Thanks Mark, It works fine now.
