My display chops off the screen or cuts off text

The program is designed to use the Small Fonts (96dpi) display setting to properly line up text in the program screen. Changing this can result in text being cut off and other appearance problems.

In order to properly display text and buttons consistently with CDE's products as well as various other companies, your display properties must be set to use fonts of size 96 DPI.
