Best I can tell, the installation of my software happened successfully, and I'm ready to start reteaching myself this program after a couple years' hiatus. However, I don't seem to be able to access some of the buttons by clicking on them. For example:
1. I can't just click on the selection tool. The only way I seem to be able to get there is to key the "V" keyboard shortcut.
2. After entering text into a document. I can't reformat by clicking on some of the buttons at the top (left, center, right justify paragraphs, changing typesize or font, etc.) The only way I'm able to make those changes is by doing it through the menus.
3. When I've selected an object, I can't change it's location by entering measurements into the boxes at the top. All I can do is drag the object to a location.
This is not normal. What OS? Also, please see:

Yes it is…if the user has Windows 7 and has chosen 150% for fonts.
Change it back to 100% or turn off Aero.
Thanks, Bob. Needless to say, that's not a solution I would have pursued.
That doesn't seem to make any sense as a solution, but it worked!
(Now I need to make an appointment with my optometrist to be able to read
the screen, but that's a different issue.)
