Report font scaling with Windows DPI% settings


I have the report below (from the report designer in visual studio).

When the report is run in our application with Windows set to scale at 125% the font is scaled up and no longer fits on the designer page, as you can see below:

I cannot see to see any properties on the CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer in order to disable scaling or on the report object itself.

I have also tried setting AutoScaleMode to None on the form and usercontrol containing the viewer without luck.

Is there a way in order to disable the scaling when windows has a dpi settings > 100%?

    • Hi Matt,

      Thank you for updating. Can you attach the report with saved data ( dummy data ) so I can test it also?

      Have you tried using a scaled font like New Courier?

      To attached the report use the Advanced editor and rename the report to *.txt.

      And try a different printer, the formatting engine does rely on it when rendering as well.
