Thanks, though I'm still not sure. The for scale thing seemed obvious, what with the numbers.Where's Ben?
older image, but I was reminded of it just now.
When WinAGI starts, it looks for settings (which should be in registry). If it can't find them, (such as first time it runs) it loads defaults. For font size, the default is 10pt. If it does find settings in registry (anytime after first run) all settings get a validation check (in case registry got corrupted or something else went wrong). For font size, if a setting found in registry is less than 4pt, WinAGI uses 4pt, and if greater than 72pt, it uses 72pt.
It turns out that there was more than just the font size that was configured strangely. I suspect that the settings in the registry must have been corrupted because there was quite a lot of settings that were different from the defaults and set to rather obscure values. I would not have changed much if anything from the defaults and yet the resource list was turned off, the tab size was set to 1, the max screen objects set to 1, all zoom levels set to one, almost all checkboxes turned off (although strangely one checkbox that was enabled was the Visual Basic syntax, which I wouldn't have turned on).
I was able to click the Defaults option though and that has restored everything to how it should be. I wonder if there is some way of detecting that something has corrupted the settings and to prompt the user if they want to restore the defaults instead.
