Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and generate pivot tables.
    In the Output Viewer you double click on the table and click
    "Format > Table Properties". On the Cell Formats tab you change
    the default font Sans Serif (9pt) to another font and size, e.g.
    Times New Roman with font size 16pt and apply it to your table.
    
    Then you right click on any of the data cells in the table and
    select Cell properties and the "Font and Background" tab and
    notice that the font is displayed as Times New Roman with size
    21pt instead of 16pt.
    If you click on "View > Toolbar" while a cell in the table is
    highlighted you see another font size e.g. 12pt than the one you
    have selected on Table Properties.
    With the dropdown on formatting toolbar or cell properties
    dialog if you select the font size you initially defined on
    table properties (e.g.16 pt) you get a smaller font size in the
    highlighted table cell, so there are font size discrepancies for
    table cells on these different dialogs.
    
    This issue was reported to IBM SPSS Development. It is expected
    to be addressed with IBM SPSS Statistics FixPack 1.
