Problem: Forms menu fields and widgets do not align correctly

Solution or Workaround

Why do fields and widgets in a forms menu not line up as in FORMEDIT or in the .menu file?

Cause:

ARC/INFO assumes that the font used is a constant width font, and allocates space in the menu accordingly. If a proportionally spaced font is used, ARC/INFO does not align the fields correctly.

Answer:

The font used for a forms menu should be a constant width font. Any of the courier or lucida-sans fonts are constant width fonts.
