    Hello Dear experts. I have a problem with which I can not handle alone. While application working on the developer computer, everything looks fine. However, after installing the application on users computer, window forms and controls have different sizes (although a similar resolution at work), which can not properly work on the program.
    I have no idea what is causing this and what am I doing wrong. Please, help and guidance on how to correct this problem?

    Hi Krzysztof,

    Thanks for contacting us and for the provided screenshots.

    From what I can see on the pictures I presume that the AutoScaleMode property of your form is set to Font. This will cause the Form to change its size according to the Font size. Since your screenshots show that the Font size is different on the user's computer, this might be the reason for the undesired visual appearance.

    Could you please take a look at your Form's properties in the Visual Studio designer and set the AutoScaleMode property to None in case it is set to a different value.

    I hope this helps.

    I also look forward to receiving further details on this case.

    Best wishes,
    Deyan
