Has anyone else ever had this problem - and solved it?

I work with XP and Word 2003 for my own documents, but usually have no trouble with Word 2007 from clients, and they work fine with Studio 2009.

Now I have set up a project with a single file - about 5600 words with a client's 2007 file - and when I open a segment, the text is magnified enormously, so there is only space, literally, for three or four letters on my screen!

I work with XP and Word 2003 for my own documents, but usually have no trouble with Word 2007 from clients, and they work fine with Studio 2009.

Now I have set up a project with a single file - about 5600 words with a client's 2007 file - and when I open a segment, the text is magnified enormously, so there is only space, literally, for three or four letters on my screen!

The font is Times Regular, pitch 10.5 so if I just open the file in Word, it is about the same size as the text on this page.
In Studio the letters are litereally 4 cm high!

I simply cannot see what I am doing, and can't work like that.

What has gone wrong?
And THANKS for any suggestions!

Hi Christine Nov 3, 2011

If you go to options in Studio, then down to font adaption, on that page you will see a tick box at the top, check that, then choose whatever fonts sizes you wish, and that should solve you problem!

Thanks, Martin, I'll try it! Nov 3, 2011

Thanks a lot!

I re-started the computer, saved the file as Word 2003 wiht another name, and opened a new project. That is working, but for other clients and documents I need to keep the other set up if possible, so I am really grateful if it works.

I am sure it will! Nov 3, 2011

I had a similar problem, that solution worked for me.

Please post to say if it worked or not

It did work Nov 3, 2011

Just back from a meeting, but now I have tried it out, and it does work.

- and it will be useful to make font sizes more comfortable, even if they are not so extreme.

Thanks again!
