Strange problem and solution

Hi Folks.


I have been updating a BoM with strange  printing results.   The font on the second sheet would be compressed.


The creation of the BoM had been normal.


During the process I deleted the drawing and created a new drawing for the second sheet.


I also deleted the drawing from the Windows folder.


Turing the process a FATAL ERROR occured so I rebooted.  I find this is a good practice.


Doing a new BoM after the boot and on a new drawing the font problem cleared.


The virus detection program is very active checking all computers. 


So with two possible causes,  Fatal Error and the file, it is not possible in my mind, to determing whick caused the problem with the font.


Basic system:   WIN7 ACE2012  8gb ram  one screen.


Just thought I would share this "Monty Python"  sketch with you folks.


Cheers  john Q
