    Hi,

    Just wanted to report a bug in the Revolution Slider layer feature.

    Repro:
    1. On an existing slide, create a new text layer and enter some text. At the bottom, give the layer an id (“test”).
    2. On a new WordPress page, insert the RevSlider slide.
    3. On the same page, create a new style with
    <style type=”text/css”>
    #id {
    font-size:18px;
    line-height:18px;
    }
    </style>
    4. When the slider is loaded, check that the font-size and line height becomes 12px, as RevSlider gives it an inline style (this.style) that is roughly 2/3 of whatever original size the font was.

    Adding !important behind the css style declaration works, *but* we lose responsive resizing (i.e. font remains 12px even if the slide gets resized smaller).

    So my workaround is that if I want the size to be 18px, I’d have to specify 27px so that RevSlider js will resize it to 18px.

    Oh, the bug remains even we use the “Edit Style” to specify font-size and line-height (instead of using css tags as above).

    So in Step 3, instead of adding the font-size and line-height to the css tag on the page, you can add that to “Edit Style” > “Advanced Editor” instead. Same result.

    have you try to edit the font size in the Slide edit -> Edit Global Style?

    No I didn’t because that overwrites the existing classes, which wasn’t what I wanted to do.

    In any case, it doesn’t matter what px value I assigned (whether by assigning a class to the layer plus a separate css declaration, or by editing the advanced style setting, which does the same thing really – assigns a new class with css settings).

    Whatever value was assigned, the RevSlider would resize it to 2/3 of the original value. So it appears to be a dynamic thing, probably by js.

    I choose style for example: large_bg_black , then I edit the style by clicking Edit Style button, defined the font size to 14px, and saved as a new style, e.g. large_bg_black_test. Then I updated the slide by clicking Update Slide. Changes has been made and works fine on various screen sizes.

    I did also try saving to another style and it didn’t work.

    It can be hard to tell if it worked or not, especially if the font size is small – but I used Firefox’s built-in Inspector (computed tab), and you can see that it has been overridden:

    See screenshot at http://imgur.com/KFrO6d7

    A) the computed font-size is 103px
    B) the computed font-size comes from this.style (103px), presumably a javascript instruction.
    C) the original, saved .alora_huge_white_text edit at 130px, which has been overridden (notice the strikeout).

    Could you see whether yours does the same? Mine is RevSlider 4.3.6

    Thanks.

    when I checked with firebug, there is inserted an element style, it’s not calling stylesheet from a css file. mine is:

    Code:
    <div style=”z-index: 2; white-space: nowrap; min-height: 0px; min-width: 0px; line-height: 40px; border-width: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 10px 20px 15px; letter-spacing: 0px; font-size: 14px; left: 451.5px; top: 100px; visibility: visible; opacity: 0; transform: translate3d(0px, 0px, 0px);” data-endspeed=”300″ data-endelementdelay=”0.1″ data-elementdelay=”0.1″ data-splitout=”none” data-splitin=”none” data-easing=”Power3.easeInOut” data-start=”500″ data-speed=”300″ data-y=”100″ data-x=”100″ class=”tp-caption large_bg_black_dfs tp-fade tp-resizeme start”>Caption Text1
    </div>

    I am running 4.3.6 version also
