The ArcView Project window cuts off document names

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The first and last letters of document names are cut off in the Project window.


Your computer uses a custom font size that is too large.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Right-click the Windows Desktop and select Properties.
  2. Switch to the Settings tab.
  3. Select either Small Fonts or Large Fonts from the Font Size dropdown list.

    Custom font sizes larger than 125% cause display problems in ArcView. When you change the font size to anything larger than 125%, Windows displays the following message: "This font size setting may cause some programs to appear incorrectly."

  4. Click the OK button on the Display Settings dialog box.
