RSLogix 5000 - Dialog Box Resize
1 Attachment(s)
Hello All,

I have a question regarding the pop-up dialog boxes in Logix5000, specifically for MSG instruction configuration.

My pop-up window seems to be cut off on one side, without an obvious way to resize my window.

Is there something I can do to remedy this issue?

Could the windows display options be affecting this? I had a different program with similar symptoms that were alleviated by setting the option in Control Panel > Display to "Smaller".

This is a known anomaly that is result of incorrect Windows font substitution
The technote 459871 has a full description and ways to correct it.
Workaround 2 in that TN is the best way to handle it

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"MS Sans Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24"="SSERIFE.FON"
"MS Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24"="SERIFE.FON"
"Courier 10,12,15"="COURE.FON"
