    Font Size not as specified (Word 2000 +serv paks)

    Recently my default font, Ariel 12, is showing up on the screen as well as printing out at a much smaller size. When I change to another font I have the same problem the font shows on the screen as well as print out in a much smaller size. I have been on MS web site and searched their data base but cannot find out how I might "fix" this or what may have caused this. I have to set my font size at about 18 to get a font that looks like 12.

    Any ideas?

    On the screen, you can be fooled by the Zoom factor, but printouts don't lie.

    In the Format > Font dialog there are a number of settings that can affect the size of text including, on the first tab, superscript and subscript, and on the second tab, scaling.

    It's also possible that your font files have been damaged, but you would notice this from all your programs in that case.

    Last but not least, some print drivers could have a "print to fit" setting that is affecting your printouts. Perhaps check the settings there (Start button > Settings > Printers> Properties) and see if anything strange jumps out at you.

    OH thank you. It was the superscript! Duh! Don't know how that got checked and OK'd but now that it is "off" my printing and script is back to normal. Just knew you would have the 'simple' answer I was missing.

    Appreciate your prompt reply <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
