Fonts in TPrinterPreview to close together

Postby willie734 » February 25th, 2004, 9:56 am

Hi,

We are using TPrinterPreview for previewing invoices.

The problem is that the characters are to close together and some chars are touching. Both on the preview and on the screen.

We are using the font Arial size 8.

In word there we don't have this problem with this font.

Is there anything we can do about this?

Do you see this problem on the demo applications?

Of course, the font size in these applications is not Arial 8, but you can easily make this change to check out the result.

I'm facing the same issue, I'm using TrueType Arial with different sizes and some characters appear to be too close to each other and it can also be just the opposite, quite a gap between some characters.
I'm afraid that there's nothing that can be done about it but it's darn annoying when I'm printing/previewing invoices as well.

Anyone solved this?
