Outlook 2007 dialog box font too large, contents truncated

Not open for further replies.


When I open a dialog box (e.g. Tools > Options) in Outlook 2007, the font is too large and some of the content is cut off. I can't see all the content, because the dialog box will not resize. I'm using Windows XP Professional version 5.1, SP3.

Are you able to view emails/contacts etc. normally?

Are you able to work with other Office applications?

Try working in Outlook safe and check if this helps.

Click on Start > Run > Copy and paste the following command line in the open box and press Enter.

Outlook /safe

If you are able to work in Outlook in the safe mode disable the add-ins.

1.On the Tools menu, click Trust Center.

2.In the Trust Center dialog box, select Add-ins.

3.In the Add-ins section of the Trust Center, select Disabled Items in the Manage list and then click Go.

4.To re-enable a disabled item, select the item in the Disabled Items dialog box, and then click Enable.

Click Close, and then click OK.




I tried both disabling and enabling the add-ins in safe mode and reopening normally. The problem remains.

It seems this is not a unique problem. A Google search found the following screen shot: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_23440729.html

and description: http://www.outlookbanter.com/outlook-installation/57439-outlook-options-dialog-box-truncated.html ,

both of which describe my problem. I tried the fix described in the second link and found that I am missing the Tahoma font under Display > Appearance> Advanced > Message Box. I don't know how to get it back. I tried alternately setting it to MS Sans Serif 8 and Arial 8, but neither affected the Outlook dialog box.
