I am trying to present a summary of the install before the last page, and have to create it dynamically.

However, the layout is terrible. How do I align text, change the size of text, etc.?

thanks!

Are you using the labelParameter or infoParameter? I found the xml characters for tabs and newlines pretty helpful for formatting multiline text strings, as seen here - XML Character Escaping. However, I am not entirely sure how you would specify the font and/or size for these type of elements. XSLT? I'll have to defer the second part of the question.

Is your summary based on component selection at runtime? Just wondering, as I have to implement the same thing, and it seems to be a common theme for installers.

Thx - I'll try the xml chars.

My summary is presenting to the user the value of the parameters they have chosen, right before they install.

Can someone please let me know how I change font and font size?

If you are using the Qt version of InstallBuilder, you could use some HTML tags:
