Re: paf 4/5 Screen Bloom

If the Edit Individual screen blooms too large and is missing buttons on the right side or bottom, try the following:

In Windows-Control Panel-Display, set the Font size to a riduclously small percentage of "normal" - say 75% of the reference 100%. Reboot a couple of times, If the Edit Individual screen in PAF is correct - Leave it Alone. Or at best stretch it carefully.

Cause: Non-multi-synch monitor must increase Font Size in Giant steps. PAF is not designed properly to handle this. It locks in the Large Font mode and cannot be re-sized downward.

Repeat as necessary until the mouse works (Use ALT F-C to close files in Desktop if mouse gets confused in the process). Repeat as necessary until the rest of the programs on the Desktop, including the browser are back to the proper medium view at the proper resolution.
