Merge fields in templates font size are too large

I do a ton of templates. In ACT 6.0, I used to be able to easily change the font size of the brackets in a merge field to the font size I needed the text to print. For instance, I would change the bracket to 10pt and the text of the name to 3 pt so that I could make the text fit into the template form. No problem.

 

Now, with 2008 Premium, sometimes I can get that to work. But, most of the time not. Anyone have a suggestion?  For instance, I have a field labeled <Gross Receipts Last Year>. That is too long for my templates. 

 

I had ACT Support on the line. They couldn't help.  To ACT:  Any plans to fix that issue in the future?

Re: Merge fields in templates font size are too large

So the brackets <> font size is the size you want the text to be and Gross Receipts Last Year is set to a smaller size so it fits on the template view.

 

Which word process are you using?  What difficulties are you having?  Are you setting the font sizes, but they not showing with the correct size?
