I have an odd scenario happening with 1 datawindow.  We're running PB 2017 Build 1681 32 bit on virtual machines.
When I view the datawindow, it seems to be resized, see images below.  It even appears to be a different font and the labels are resized.  I've tried to delete and re-add, to no avail.
I've tried to delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Sybase>PowerBuilder>17.0>Layout>Default>Datawindow registry setting, again to no avail.

NORMAL - It goes out to nearly the 8 on the ruler.
" />Normal


DISTORTED - It only goes to the 6.25 mark on the ruler.

Hi Dennis;

  Remember that the DWO in the IDE and at run-time draws its font definitions from the current printer.

Also just an FYI ... the IDE is not certified for use on MS-Windows Server O/S's ( ie: W2008 => W2016).

Regards ... Chris

Thanks Chris,

I've seen the printer scenario before, (especially with label printers).  This one is odd since the whole department (All 4 of us) use and are defaulted to the same printer and it is just this 1 datawindow.

I believe we're running on Linux, not certain.

It's really odd, seemed fine one day and then it wasn't.
