Cause: The setting for Title and Certificate Pages is incorrect.
This is our most common support question.
The number of Title and Certificate pages is extremely important to the condensing process.
ProTEXT defines Title and Certificate Pages as:
Solution 1 - Let ProTEXT help you find the correct number of Title and Cert pages
Solution 2 - Let ProTEXT help you find the correct number of Title and Cert pages
Solution 3 - You choose the correct number of Title and Cert pages
This setting is so important because ProTEXT must normally use a smaller font (typeface) size to print title and certificate pages than to print testimony pages. Title pages can sometimes have 35-50 printed lines, where testimony pages might have only 22-29 printed lines. This allows ProTEXT to print testimony pages with a much larger typeface than when printing title and certificate pages.
Another reason that this setting is so important: ProTEXT allows you to choose three different fonts (typefaces):
1 - The font (typeface) for the Title Pages.
2 - The font for the Testimony Pages.
3 - The font for the Certificate Pages.
When you tell ProTEXT the correct number of Title and Certificate pages for each job, the software will then know which pages must be printed with the Title Pages typeface, the Testimony Pages typeface, and the Certificate Pages typeface.
