Resizing on my screen

Hello,

 

For the past two days, my screen is out of whack.  I used to be able to see 3 columns of fields.  Now it only shows 2 with the third being off screen and the empty fileds are much larger.  When I go into Design Layouts and come out, the 3 columns show up for 1 second and then an error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" appears.  Screen comes back to 2 columns.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thx

What happens if you try another layout or one of the default ones?  Do they seem "normal"?

Yup.  They all show up normal for 1 second then disappear with a dialog box opening with the previously mentionned mssg.

And I realize too that when I'M in the calendar and use GO TO CONTACT command it won't go.  The current contact shoes up and the message above-mentionned appears!

Did you change your video to large fonts? If so, change it to normal fonts (96dpi).

Yeah,  changing the dpi settings in the OS is a no-no - wreaks havoc with how ACT! displays in various ways...

Nope...  Went in to Tools - Design Layout and did something (don't know what) and it changed everything.

Hows about opening the demo database - does that work normally?
