Textboxes truncated on reports - 03-03-2009 , 10:46 AM
Access 2003. My problem is that if I use a 9 point truetype font,
some textboxes on my reports are truncated on the right, i.e., they
will drop a character or will truncate in the middle of a printed
character. It is not a 'can grow' issue. This property is set to
True for the textbox itself and the section it lives in. All of the
lines of text print except that a character or fraction of a character
on some lines may be cut off on the right. It is not a margins issue
since the truncated characters do not appear on the next page. I've
tried three different true type fonts (Tahoma, Arial, and Times Roman)
and so long as the font size is set to 9, I have this problem.
Setting to size 8 or 10 or 11, the problem goes away. Every time I
change the font size I do a Format->Size to fit, so that's not the
issue either. I have gone into page setup and tried multiple
'specific printers', all with the same result. I'm not sure what else
to try other than to avoid using 9 point truetype fonts. Any
suggestions on what else to look for? Thanks.

It would appear that there is a difference in the drivers for your display
and your printer when it comes to rendering that particular size of that
particular typeface. That, by the way, is not uncommon. I just manually
adjust until the printed output is the way I want it, if downloading current
drivers doesn't cure the problem.
