1296166 - Right Aligned text doesn't display correctly in a .NET Windows Application

Symptom

  • Text set to use the Horzontal Alignment option "Right" is cut off and only the first few characters display on the right side of the field.
  • This only occurs when using a font with a @ in the title (such as @Arial Unicode MS)

Cause

Fonts with a @ in front of them are used for vertical text (Such as Japanese or Chinese).  These fonts do not currently work when right-aligned in a .NET windows application.

Resolution

Use the non @ version of the font (such as Arial Unicode MS).
