Cloze is stripping formatting & enlarging text

I'm a new Anki user. When I'm in the Browser & am making cloze cards, the text within the Cloze is getting blown up in size and is stripping any formatting (e.g. highlight, italics, bold). I've tried changing font size within "Fields" but that didn't work. I'm at a loss and would be so grateful for any help!!

    Hi Elizbeth,

    The cloze shortcut currently isn't able to preserve the original formatting on the text you're wrapping. The font size is changing because the text inside your fields has set an explicit font size, which overrides the font configured in the Fields screen. Recent Anki versions filter out the font size changes when pasting, but perhaps your fields were created with an older Anki version, or with the help of an add-on.

    I've attempted to fix this in beta3 - please give it a try.
