When I open an archicad job from my home computer the font shows up larger and outside of the text box frame. I was told it could be I was missing font Arial Unicode MS Regular. I have since install that front but hasn't fixed the problem. Any ideas on how to fix?

If you are on a Windows PC, check your operating system display settings.
See if you have scaled the text size.
If so set it back to 100% (you may need to restart Archicad - possibly the machine).

Thanks runexl,

That could be it. I can't find it in the arial narrow in my font's folder. I'll try downloading and see how I go.

It is as Runxel mentioned.
You do not have the "Arial Narrow" font installed on your machine - that is why the font name appears in square brackets.
It has nothing to do with "Arial Unicode MS Regular".

It will be substituting Arial for it which is a wider font than the space allowed.
