I have an application written in RB for OSX that is also compiled for use with Windows (no source changes between the two). The report generator works fine on both platforms, however, the OSX version prints as expected while the Windows version when running on Windows 7 prints in nearly microscopic type. As the report is designed to be printed on labels, the location and sizing are big issues for me.

I ran a search and didn't see a similar topic, though my searching skills may not be as good as others. If the topic has been addressed before, please point me to the relevant thread. If not, has anyone else run into this problem.

What are the fonts and sizes you are using between the two and do you really have those fonts?

Arial 14 pt type. It appears to be font common to both systems.

I don't use the built-in reporting tool but it might be that the resolution is very high on the system where it's tiny. Have you checked printer resolution?

I'm sort of grasping at straws so sorry if I'm not helping much.
