With XP DPI 120 several screens have overlapping text.
Did anybody find a better set of fonts for this (to be applied in WitwFontConfig.txt)?

Edit: Typo

I too have text that runs together or lines compressed on top of each other. These appear at the tops (column headings) and at the bottom of some information screens, like casualties, and on some unit details depending on the layout of information. In addition, the combat resolution windows have some text issues as well. It must be font related and appears that a smaller font would help. Screen resolution does not affect it.

There's a thread somewhere with people talking about how you can mod the text fonts used in the game. I can't find the thread, but it is possible to mod the fonts and sizes. The WitwFontConfig.txt file in the /dat directory lists the fonts and the sizes used. These can be adjusted. Red Lancer or some others could probably help you with this if you post in the Scenario Design and Modding area.

Experimented a bit. Reducing font #1 (Common Header font) from 14 to 12, and font #2 (Common Game Font) from 10-9 seems to have cleared up the problem. Checked a bunch of screens including unit info, commanders report and casualties and those 2 small changes made a world of difference. Thanks. Just needed to know where to go to make the changes.

Thanks Dave for the tip, I still have view overlapping but it's much better than the original settings.
