Hi Bernhard,

Sorry, I just realised, I think I know the problem as I have had to deal with similar skewed looking programs.

My laptop has a 120dpi screen not the usual 96 dpi and I have had to rewrite a lot of older programs to cater for this difference including the early version of my emulator.

If your software allows automatic scaling, then Windows will try to match the image, text sizes and positioning dimensions for different screen resolutions and that process sometimes gives weird results. There are other screen resolutions out there as well and Microsoft itself cannot guarantee that all programs will be rendered properly on all screen types.

My compiler has a Form property called [Scaled] which can be set to True or False.

If you can disable the scaling it may work properly.
