    Outlook Menus/Fonts (Outlook 2002)

    <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
    Ok, can anyone help me figure out why the fonts are large on the menus?? See the attached jpeg of the Tools/Options menu. Most of the buttons are not available, the only button that is fully visible on the form is the Contact Options... under Contacts. The form is "normal" size and all of the tabs are visible and readable, but the pages are not. I've checked the windows settings, detected and repaired in Outlook and uninstalled and re-installed but the menus still show up the same way with the large font.

    Thanks for the help!!

    Do you remember to re-attach the attachment before you finally posted - because it didn't come through.

    what are your window settings? specifically, the resolution and the font size setting on the video card tab.

    Sorry about the attachment!

    Window settings are fine, large fonts are not being used, res is 1024x768 and all of the settings under Appearance have been double-checked. Even tried lowering the hardware acceleration. Outlook appears to be the only program affected.

    outlook uses Tahoma font and all font sizes are hard coded.The screenshot looks like a system font, that means you must be missing tahoma.

    find it on your office cd and copy it into the fonts folder.
