Mac Works: Kerning Changes in Database Between Versions

PSS ID Number: Q103838 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

3.0 4.0

MACINTOSH

======================================================================

The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 3.0 and 4.0 ==

SUMMARY

When a Microsoft Works database is converted from Works 2.0 to Works 3.0 or 4.0, the kerning changes in the list and report views of the database.

This means that the characters in the Works 3.0 or 4.0 database are further apart (horizontally) for any given font than they were in the Works 2.0 database. As a result, less fields will fit on the page when reports are printed.

MORE INFORMATION

To display more fields on a printed report, do one of the following:

  1. Decrease the width of fields in the report. (For more information about changing the width of a field, see page 108 in the “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 3.0, or see page 225 or 293 of the “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 4.0.)

  2. From the File menu, choose Page Setup and change the orientation to landscape. (For more information about changing the orientation of the page, see page 132 in “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 3.0, or page 109 of the “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 4.0.)

  3. From the File menu, choose Page Setup. Click the Document button. Decrease the right and left margins. Choose OK. (For more information about changing margins, see page 132 in the “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 3.0, or page 111 of the “Microsoft Works User’s Guide” for version 4.0.)

  4. Reduce the size of the report by doing the following:

    1. From the File menu, choose Page Setup.

    2. For a LaserWriter printer, enter a value smaller than 100% in the Reduce or Enlarge box. Click OK.

    3. For an ImageWriter printer, choose 50% reduction under Special Effects. Click OK.
