A known issue with ACT! is that if Windows font size is anything other than 96 DPI strange things begin to happen (refer to KB 26349). The current 'fix' is to change your font size back to 96 DPI.
I would like to see this fixed so that any other font size can be used.
There are two primary reasons for this that I see are that
1. more people are buying large LCD monitors;
2. the workforce is aging and their eyesight is not getting better.
My fear (as an ACT! Certified Consultant) is that unless Sage fix this issue so that we can use larger font sizes in Windows without adversely affecting our use of ACT! we will have clients look for products that don't break, that allow them to use large font sizes on their large LCD screens.
Can we please have this fixed properly?
This is ONLY going to become a 'bigger' issue (pun intended).
I don't see a forum for reporting bugs. Hope this will do. It's minor.
When entering/editing a note on the note tab (under contacts but I imagine this is true in other free form fields) I have discovered after some analysis prompted by a client complaint that the font format settings do not necessarily reflect the settings at the location of the cursor. I believe it is Microsoft standard that those settings reflect the change immediately on moving the cursor if the format where you move the cursor to is different than its prior location. For example, I open a note and type some text. Then I change font formatting and type more text. So far, normal. I've got text in two formats. But if I now click to place the cursor back in the initial text with the initial formatting, the settings at the top do not change to reflect the format at the new cursor location. If I save and close the note thinking that the displayed format settings (for the latter text) will remain the default for that note interface, I would be wrong. When I go back in to the note, the default settings have changed to those of the text where the cursor was when I exited, even though those were not displayed.
