I seem to be having some sort of display issue with some Blinds.  For example, 7 Plus by adni18 won't display right on my machine.  I'll try to show an image might work lol.

Additional info.  I checked to make sure WindowBlinds is fully updated.  I also verfied the install with Impulse.  Problem persists.

Are there any others?

I am about 90% sure it is 1 of 2 things #1 do you have WB config to overide skin defined fonts or have you changed the font DPI settings in Windows ?

Your font is larger than it should be by default skin settings which will push the programs list wider by best guess is Windows DPI settings.

^  I agree, Harley. Set to use skin defined fonts. DPI - change back to what windows suggests you use.

Thanks theAVMAN.  You nailed it.  Now to find some other way to improve font size.
