Our server and most of our clients are OS X. But we have a few rebels wink.gif accessing the databases with Windows - mainly XP. But nearly every layout looks different in Windows and they cannot print forms that they need. The fields cut out some of the test and even objust are in different places. FMP is supposed to be cross platform, but I am getting frustrated.

IS there a simple way to get the layouts to look the same in both platforms?

A lot depends on the fonts you choose to use. Keep them very simple.

Generally text is a bit bigger in WinOS, smaller in MacOS. IF developing on the Mac, leave extra room for text and check it on a PC regularly.

Printing woes depend a lot on the fonts used and the printer drivers.
