Label "sizing" and "positioning" on screens and various widgets

Solved

Bernat just sent me a reply to a "problem" with my centering text on buttons, but today I am going nuts. I am spending so much time trying to figure out spacing and positioning, it is becoming counterproductive. Is it something I am doing? Or is it 5.5. I have had zero problems before upgrading to 5.5.


Will you look at the attached images to see if you can tell me how to correct what I am seeing versus what actually displays?


Is it my imagination (or am I splitting hairs here)? Could it be my display (I am running Windows Home Premium on a Windows 7 computer. Monitor is about 23")? Is there a problem with 5.5?


I appreciate any investigation you can do. If you need more information, let me know. Thanks.

Hello Sandra,


Have you recently changed the default windows fonts size? Prototyper is not compatible with bigger font sizes yet and it could lead to these kind of differences.

While, I have not made any changes to Windows. I will check to be sure that my display font size is 100%. See attached: Is this the setting to which you are referring...?

Note - 1: The problem is inconsistent. Text labels or button labels created using an earlier version of J.I.M. seem to render okay most times. However, sometimes I have to fight with the program.


Note - 2: My problem occurs always when I create a new button or label.


Note - 3: Visual spacing differences between prototype page and simulation or Usernote is a problem regardless of the version used to create the screen.
