After many years as a very happy Avant user, I have the same problems with smaller fonts now.
It started just recently--I don't know if its the new avant version or my change from IE 7 to 8.
It's driven me to start using Orca.

Since 11.7 26 my text is too small (default medium), pressing control and moving the mousewheel (WHICH I WANT BACK) does NOTHING! Does anyone know how to fix this annoyance???

View>Scroll down>Text Size. You have 5 to choose from.
Unless you are meaning you cannot change by this means.
My build is Av 11.6 20

"It most likely has something to do with the DPI because a bug with the tabs bar was fixed for users using higher than normal DPI's."

This IS the problem for me because when I temporarily reset the DPI down to 96 the problem went away. I hate DPI 96 (prefer 120) so hopefully this will be resolved soon.

This problem still remains on AB build 28, and also tabs blinks in Google toolbar 6 installed (see AB blink once after installing google toolbar 6)!

Yes the characters are still too small if you have the dpi set to 120.
Please fix this! It is a much bigger problem than all the little things that are usually addressed.
I don't understand why this isn't a bigger priority?

Thanks!
This problem is fixed, and it shows fine view in 100% (normal) size. It looks as same as build 23!

update.
the problem is mostly, but NOT completely, fixed.
I was just using a financial website and noticed that while the main window was OK, a pop-up window of information had the fonts still smaller than they should have been (compared to both Chrome and Firefox).

(to be clear when I say pop-up I don't mean the ad kind, in fact my pop-up blocker is checked. Its just an additional window that is created by the same website in a less than full size when you click on a link.)

Could you explain more in detail what sites and what you do to cause the problem? For this site fidelity.com, what page you link to shows smaller font compared with other browsers?

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:
Avant Version; System(also point out it is a 32 or 64-bit OS);IE; Memory Size; CPU Speed;
Optional: Firewall; Graphics Card

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.

Am I the only person who has problems with the font sizes?
Sometimes too small, sometimes too big, sometimes OK.
