I have not found a way around it yet, but I believe it is related to display scaling using the font-size. This is a common .Net issue and requires a lot of effort as a programmer to make come out right in all cases of font scaling.

My wife uses the large fonts to see clearer, but the display is scaled out of proportion on the listing window and about a third of the display lost on the right and bottom.

Thanks for your help. Your input corrected the problem, but the text is small now & I will have to put my glasses on. Nevertheless all is now ok
thanks

There is one more compatibility option I would like to try when my wife has the time to test it. Unfortunately I don't have AuctionSplash installed, i may try to install it for my buying account at ebay and see if it works, that way I can test things easier, but i don't know if that will work. Anyhow, under the shortcut in compatibility settings there is a check box to turn off display scaling, which is what got rewritten under Windows 7 and is causing a lot of grief to programmers. *If* that works all it means is you can leave the font large for everything else in Windows7, and then auction splash will still be small printing you need glasses for. That isn't much of an advantage, but it helps prevent everything else from shrinking.
