Font size for a word bigger than the others in a sentence

Hi,

I am displaying an expression my chart. Something like this:  there are (expression) open bugs.

I want to enlarge that number to a different colour and font size as compared to the rest of the words in the sentence.

-- I already tried going to Properties -> Expressions -> clicking on the + button and Text colour -> and i wrote blue (count({<State={New}>} Number))

But this did not change the colour of that part of the expression.

So here is the expression:

= count({<State={New}>} Number)& ' New incidents!'

So i want to now change the colour of this number part and increase the font size.

how can i do that?

Thanks!

Re: Font size for a word bigger than the others in a sentence

I just saw your other post where I see you are trying to do the bolding in the caption of a gauge chart. I don't think that's possible. As John suggested, you could get the effect by creating some text objects or by using the Text in Chart feature as I have in this updated example. I moved the texxt around by using Ctl-Shift.

I don't believe you can do that directly, though you could fake it with two different text boxes, one for the number, one for the text.

Formatting applies to the entire expression, so you have to use separate objects or expressions.

Attached is an example of using three expressions to get the result you want. I unselected "Vertical Expression Borders" in Style to create the appearance of one cell for the phrase.
