    Exclamation Font issue with Windows 7

    I just upgraded my truck PC from XP to Windows 7. The font for ALL of the labels in ALL of the skins grew larger. I tried to go into the skin editor to reduce them, but the size doesn't change even after I correct them there.

    Anybody have a clue what the problem is?

    Thanks...

    1-Check your windows Font DPI size (to see if it's set to LARGER instead of NORMAL).
    2-Check that you have the correct fonts installed (or it will replace the font and it won't fit right).

    Thanks guino. Solution 1 was it. The sad part is that I changed that setting myself when I installed 7 because everything on the desktop was so tiny on a 7" monitor. I guess it didn't occur to me that it would have an effect on other programs besides just Windows system stuff.

    That is a global windows setting. If the fonts are too small, you may consider changing the screen resolution. You can keep the LARGE DPI setting but then you'd have to adjust the skins to reduce the fonts so they fit.
