In preparation for an upcoming project, I just installed Windows 7 x64 on a 27" iMac under boot camp. To save my ageing eyes, I have set the font display to Medium - 125%, which is fine except the Real Studio IDE looks ugly, with text entered in edit fields and list boxes being clipped. It is close to unusable.

Anyone know of a way to get the Real Studio IDE to use a smaller font size. I tried setting the Windows Editor font in the Options but that has not fixed it. I am running Real Studio Enterprise Edition R4.3 if that makes any difference.

I would try going into the control panel (Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display) and try the "Set custom text size (DPI)" option

OK thanks for the suggestion.

Your suggestion is just another way to do what I have already done. Windows gives a choice of setting one of three preset DPI scaling factors (smaller 100%, medium 125%, larger 150%) or to use a custom value.

Adjusting the Windows DPI makes all fonts in all applications smaller/larger. I was hoping there might be a way to adjust just the Real Studio IDE fonts.

Thanks again

Select the 'Code Editor' icon... that worked for me.

Sorry not what you needed.

Code Editor is fine. I always change to a smaller, fixed width font (Lucida Console, 14) from the RS default anyway. It's the edit fields and list boxes that are the problem. E.g. Add a constant and the Constant Name field is clipped, after clicking Analyze Project, the bug list text is clipped in the rows.

Strangely, I just noticed that when I add a method, the method name is not clipped.

Starting to look like a genuine bug to me.
