On some Win98 systems, the dialog which comes up after you initiate a job is distorted. The UI gadgets (buttons etc) are not properly aligned. Anyone seen this or know what causes it.

Is there a way to post screen captures of "good" and "bad" dialogs so folks can see what I mean?

   I received the screenshots by e-mail. It was found that the problem only occurs on Windows 95 / 98 / ME machines if the display font size is set to a non-default value such as "Large Fonts". The default is "Small Fonts". This problem does not occur on Windows NT / 2000 / XP machines.

   I will fix this problem in the next release (v2.1). For now, if you experience this problem, open the display control panel and set the font size back to the default value ("Small Font") as shown here:


Here is a sample screenshot of what the problem might look like:

Hello Charles,

   OK, I think I got it fixed now. You can use the following patch: - Upgd_Win98_Distortion.exe

   Here is the full "unofficial" install for PDF reDirect Pro with the fixed code: - Install_PDFR_Pro_v2016.exe
