hi-
i opened word perfect 12 and everything is blue. when i go and try and change the font size it is always bigger than what it says. if i click on a size 12 its really around a 16 font size. is there anyway that i can fix this and if there isnt then are there any ok free typing programs out there that i could download until i could go pick up something like microsoft word?

thank you :thumbsup:

Did you check the Zoom level of the document? It is possible that it is set higher than 100% which would make the font appear larger.

Did you check the default font coloring?

Typing programs? As in to improve your typing skills? Or as in a word processing program?
