Adobe Summit 2023 [19th to 23rd March, Las Vegas and Virtual] | Complete AEM Session & Lab list

Font size changes automatically in the rich text editor


Level 2

Hi everyone,


I've found a bug regarding the RTE, after making some changes to the text, the bolded text changes the size without actually changing it. I'm using AEM 6.5 on-premise with SP (it was reproducible before as well). Any idea about this?


Here's how I reproduce it:

  1. Create an RTE inside the page, enter some text in it

  2. Set a word as bold, and separate a sentence into a new line, like this
    • matzikaa_2-1671014362209.png


  3. Now, when I remove this new line and return the text as it was (with the bolded word), a style is added to the bold tag setting the font size to 0.8125rem

Any suggestion here would be great. Thanks

hi @matzikaa ,


This seems to be bug with OOTB RTE. You can raise support ticket so that Adobe product engineering team can look into that.


Meanwhile, you can manually remove the class added when you change the bold content from one line to another.


Hope that helps.

Hi @Nikita___Garg,


Thanks for the reply. I thought that it actually could be an OOTB bug, so I'll definitely open a support ticket.


Best regards,
