It might possibly have something to do with your DPI setting. If you go to Start>Control Panels>Display and select the Set custom text size what is it set too? Please try setting it for 100% and see if you continue to face the same difficulty.
Interesting - I had a similar issue with Elements 10. I was told by Adobe Support to:
- Uninstall Elements 10.
- Change the date on my Mac to 11/01/11.
- Reinstall Elements 10.
Thank you so much, Jeff. I tried setting the font size at 100% and the problem was resolved.
Excellent thank you for the update Qsawatsky!
