I'm a senior citizen and have a new problem with my reliable WP X3 for Windows. The display shows a much smaller font than I’m using. For instance, I generally use Times New Roman 12, but it shows up in the display about like a #8 font used to. When I print it out, the font is the size that it should be.
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS](I changed to Arial 12 here)The type of font does'nt seem to make much difference. When I used Arial 12 it shows up a little larger, but not much. [/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]I have Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 2. Is there a fix for this problem, short of up grading to a modern version of WP???[/FONT]

I have a number of suggestions that would work in Office 2007, but I'm not sure what the initials WP X3 mean --- so I'm not sure if any of them would work for you, or if we can find something comparable. Why don't you tell us what WP X3 stands for, and we can start with that.

I checked on the site and it appears you have the latest update installed.
From what you write it seems that the font prints out correctly, but the screen size is too small.i.e. hard to see?
Suggestion re screen size( and I don't know if this applies to Word perfect ) press the Plus sign and see if the screen font enlarges.

See if any of these adjustments work for you. Some of them are for Vista, and some are for IE8:

1. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size – DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

2. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there’s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page. I keep mine at 125%.

3. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font styles specified on web pages, check boxes and click OK, then Apply, then OK.

4. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

5. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

6. Ease of Access Center – Go to: Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

7. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

8. Magnifier – For those instances when you need to magnify a certain portion of the screen - go to Start, in the Search pane, type in "magnifier" + click the program at the top. (To read more about Magnifier go to Start, click "Help & Support" on the right hand side, type in "magnifier.") Magnifier is actually located at: Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, Magnifier.
