Using Propeller Tool v1.3
Windows XP

The fonts just went all weird on me.
characters sort of compressed and walking on top of each other.
What did I do, and how do I fix it.


Thanks.
Roger

Judging by the look of the $ character, that's not the Parallax font. Can you check if it's still installed on your machine?

This happens to me in the CODE boxes. I believe it's a result of making the fonts larger in FireFox for these aging eyes. I can live with it by copying any code I am interested in to my editor. (EditPlus, IIRC)

I suppose I could use Ctrl+GreyMinus to make the fonts smaller, but then I couldn't read the code!! :D

Add: Rereading your message, I see you are most likely using the Prop editor, but the principle should be the same.

It appears the Parallax font is corrupted.

This screen shot is from Control Panel/fonts/Parallax(TrueType).

I've never seen that happen before... I'd try reinstalling the Prop tool...

It happened to me once. IIRC deleting then reinstalling the Parallax font fixed the problem. Also, you might want to switch to the tweaked Parallax font while you're at it:
