I am reg user Marked 2 latest version on Mojave. I am using Marked with the Drafts app
I have chosen Marked 2 Github which I customized to make font smaller (13 body, 16 headers).
I like the display in the Marked 2 viewer window, and can't understand why the fonts are so enormous when I either try to print directly from Marked 2 or via PDF (a 3/4 length page text because 2 full PDF pages). I don't like going through RTF because I lose nice Github features like the italics (grey background in red box).
thanks for your time and help

    I'm going to have to look into this. In Export settings do you have a "Custom Font Size for Export/Print" set?

    There are my settings.
    It's better if I uncheck custom fonts, but note that custom font was set to 10 which is very small.
    Thank you.

    If you set your export font to 10, do you see a difference?

    No Brett. When I wrote to you initially it was set at 10.
    correction: I wrote above that it was better (somewhat smaller) if I unchecked custom font. I was mistaken: it does not change anything.
    a 3/4 page text is displayed in giant fonts on 2 pages.
    thank you for thinking about my question
