Hi,

I have Outlook 2007 with BCM (I don't use the BCM feature) and whenever I

try to add a new category, the text I enter completely overlaps to the point

I can't read it. If I continue to type anyway and hit "OK" the category

comes out correctly and has been added, but the garbled text is annoying and

it is difficult to see if I have made a typo until too late.

This problem is now spreading to other standard Outlook forms where I type

in information. The consistent thing when I have this problem seems to be

when Outlook opens a new pop-up window to add information.

Can you please suggest what might be causing this problem and, more

importantly, how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

What windows theme do you use? What Display settings do you use? (Small

(default), Medium, Large)

FWIW, if you don't use BCM, uninstall it. It's probably not the cause of

this problem but if you aren't using it, there is no need to have it

installed.
