sas AF migration from 9.1 to 9.3 screen sizing problem.

I have a rather large AF application. In 9.1 the screens are approximately 5" x 7".  Same emulator, Same AF application - running under 9.3, the screen opens up as 4x6 and also all of the components are also smaller.  The writing in each of the components, combo boxes, text boxes, check boxes - is cut off because they were designed for the size of the screen and on screen components in 9.1 .  I have been working with SAS for almost a month on this and so far, we have not gotten it fixed.   The check boxes in 9.3 were so teeny that you could not see if they were selected.  I did fix these components by changing the font to adobe Helvectia.   But, the frames do not have a font attached to them.  Has anyone else had this issue?    

Basically, a frame that is 50 x 70 in 9.1 SHOULD be the same size as a 50 x 70 frame in 9.3, but it is not.  It's like the unit of measure is different.

Can anyone help me correct this?    I have attached the two frames so you can see the difference. sas 9.3 vs 9.1 screen.JPG

Thanks,

I have been told, you can move a question to the correct topic group later when in doubt.

Re: sas AF migration from 9.1 to 9.3 screen sizing problem.

I was able to solve this by changing the system font to   -xrm 'SAS.systemFont:-Adobe-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-P-67-ISO8859-1 -

Sorry for the duplicate posts - I posted this message in several communities, hoping someone would see it that might could help me.

Thanks!
