Default Font size changing

Hi, maybe I'm over thinking this but hopefully someone can help me. I have 4 lines that are set to fit to a 2.25" x 1.25" text frame. I have it set to fit to the frame with 4 similar rules as per the name of the field. If the "name" is only 10 characters long but the "title" is 25 - 30 every field shrinks to the longest field. What I would like is for each field to fit based on it's own attributes. Basically, if I have the text set in the frame to 20 pt I prefer that only the longer information scales down and the 20 pt remains on anything that would fit at that point size. Hope this makes sense. I've attached my file to give a better idea. Thank you!

You were very close. Each rule can just call CopyfitLineWithMagnifyTag to fit itself independently.

I tweaked the code just a bit, putting this into the JavaScript Globals:
Code:
function CopyfitLineWithMagnifyTag(line, width, AllowToExpand)
{
    var tm = new FusionProTextMeasure;
    tm.CalculateTextExtent(line);
    if (tm.messages)
        ReportError("CopyfitMagnifyLine: " + tm.messages);

    if (tm.textWidth < width && !AllowToExpand)
        return line;

    var factor = Round(width / tm.textWidth * 100, 0) - 10;
    return "<magnify type=text factor=" + factor + ">" + line + "</magnify>";
}

function FitInfoLine(fieldName)
{
    var lineText = TaggedDataField(fieldName);
    
    var font = Field("Font");
    switch (font)
    {
      case "Gotham":
        font = "Gotham Medium";
          break;
      case "Goudy":
        font = "GoudyOldStyExtBol";
          break;
    }

    //font = "Arial"; // I used this since I don't have your fonts.
    var pointSize = 14;

    var content = '<f name="' + font + '"><z newsize="' + pointSize + '">' + lineText;
    var frameWidth = FindTextFrame(FusionPro.Composition.CurrentFlow.name || "info").GetSettableTextWidth();
    return CopyfitLineWithMagnifyTag(content, frameWidth);    
}
Then each of the four rules become one-liners, like so:
Code:
return FitInfoLine("Name");
Code:
return FitInfoLine("Title");
Code:
return FitInfoLine("Department");
Code:
return FitInfoLine("SC");
Finally, and this is very important, you need to turn OFF copyfitting for the frame, in the Overflow Options dialog.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Thank you very much Dan. I haven't had a chance to try it but this definitely makes sense. As always, I appreciate your help!
