PRJ98: Text Displayed Incorrectly Using Large Fonts Setting

When you enable Large Fonts in the Display Control Panel, you may not be able to see all of the information in your project file. For example, the Finish Field on the Resource Form may not be wide enough and the last digit of the year may not be visible.


Microsoft Project 98 was designed to use Small Fonts rather than Large Fonts. The Large Font size will work but can result in the text not being displayed correctly in Microsoft Project.


To work around this behavior, set the Display font size to Small Fonts, using these steps:

  1. On the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Display icon.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. In the Font Size box, select Small Fonts, and then click OK.

When prompted to restart Windows, click Yes. The new font size will be used when you restart your computer.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
