Sims on windows 7
Have had capita down last week and migrated to the fees package inside Sims ..... The main users are now complaing that the font is to small ( agree there). works fine on XP ,But don't want to downgrade a new machine.
Any ideas as it seems to be fixed inside sims.net tried all the normall fixes.
Change the DPI setting in windows 7 to increase the size of all of the fonts to a more readable level, just do a search in control panel for DPI and it should bring it up, boost it to 125% and see if it makes a difference. Knowing education software is is probably hard-coded for previous versions of windows but it is worth a go.
Been down that path, seems the boxes are a fixed size.
Short of a helper app or a fix in SIMS you may be limited to the nasty, nasty hack of dropping the screen resolution.
the problem with sims is ( or at least this was an issue quite recently dating back at least a few years) that it's built for minimum of 1024*768, if you go smaller, then links don't line up with where you click on the screen. I think this also happens on very large resolutions, so be careful.
maybe the even worse solution is to use the magnifier from accessibility tools. ;)
Are you using ATI GPUs in your computers, there was a thread on here a short while ago about default font scaling for the fallback fonts used by ancient programs http://www.edugeek.net/forums/windows-7/55357-7-ati.html
This sounds very simmilar and may hopefully solve your problem.
