Text in MS Drawing Displays Larger in Print Preview

PSS ID Number: Q100201 Article last modified on 11-01-1994

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Draw, version 1.0 - Microsoft Windows operating system versions 3.0 and 3.1


If an embedded Microsoft Drawing object contains text, that text may appear large relative to the other elements of the drawing in print preview. The text in a Microsoft Drawing object appears correctly in other Word for Windows views, such as page layout or normal view.

This is only a print preview display problem. The text usually prints correctly, although the System font prints incorrectly, as displayed in print preview. Other bitmap fonts may also print incorrectly. TrueType fonts print correctly, even though they display incorrectly in print preview.

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

More Information:

This is a known problem in which metafile text does not scale properly in print preview.
