Ever since 2005, ACT! has not been able to handle higher DPI / larger windows fonts - this is a defect! I know of no other software that can't deal with large fonts.Factors:1. An aging workforce with deteriorating eyesite,2. Availability of high-resolution laptops with large screens that result in tiny, almost unreadable fontsNormal Fix:1. Users 'up' their fonts to large fonts, and ACT! goes kaplooey! Mini-calendars repeat across the screen, labels overlap and wrap - a mess!
1. Users have to set their fonts/DPI back to normal and then can't read any application, have to use glasses and curse ACT!
Question:If everyone else can deal with different font sizes, why can't ACT!? What did you do differently than other software vendors to lock yourself into 96dpi?
I have Act 2008 Version 10 and this is essentially a fatal problem as far as my using Act goes. Does the new version address this problem?
I have the same problem! I'm using Windows 7 with font size set on "LARGE". ACT 2011 will display, but the screen is fuzzy as if out of focus. Additionally, when you send an email the left menu pane and the header for the Notes pane both "inflate" to what looks like about 32point size. I have to restart ACT to get the font size back to normal.
I can't believe that ACT hasn't fixed this problem given the fact that just about everyone has large monitors these days and especially after 13 versions of ACT. ACT says they read these boards, I hope they take these posts to heart a fix this problem promptly.
