I have been using iJournal for some time now, and have tried to figure this out on my own..AND CAN'T! Hopefully someone can help me out!! This is the ONLY problem I have come across so far.

Why is it when I use any type of fonts or colors or different sizes for my posts, it doesn't turn up once it posted? For instance, I wanted to post a Happy Birthday message to a friend of mine. I used "teal" as the color, the font was at 36 and I used "Jokerman LET". It looked really cute as I used different keys to make different characters. Anyway....when I submitted it, it was just plain old bold text. In the regular size font as well. Dull and Boring. What gives?! I have tried this on many occasions, but today was my last resort!! And all the stuff I'm using (fonts, colors, etc) are all from my LJ...so why doesn't it show up that way once it's submitted? What am I missing in my preferences or settings?!?!?!?!!?


Oh yeah, just in case someone asks, I'm using OS X Version 10.3.6 (PowerPC G4) and my iJournal is the current version.

Thanks in advance!

Well, iJournal doesn't support sending fonts and colours unless you type them into the raw HTML (which is annoying if you are a casual user). It won't interpret the attributed strings in the UI as their HTML interpretation.

I didn't even realize that it let you type them until now (I thought it forced plain text).

For now, at least, I think that you are out of luck.

I have that probelm too. I mean, what's the point of using iJournal if you still have to type in all that code?

It's my understanding that the purpose of iJournal is to be a client version of LJ's posting page, not to be an HTML editor, WYSIWYG or otherwise. Explanation of clients is here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=158

Still, this kind of font processing isn't too hard to do in the client (as opposed to, say, effective image management). It just requires the correct place to hook the text field and do the translation from the attributed string to a normal string with HTML tags.

I'm not disputing that (as you could probably tell from my response to the comment that was not yours). I was simply restating the purpose of a client and providing reference material.
