large fonts and NT = bad news for DotNet apps?

Bob
The physical design of my forms changes - control sizes and distances, even
where the center of the screen is supposed to be - when a user runs my
DotNet applications on a Windows NT machine using large fonts. Is this a
known problem with the Framework? Do they plan on fixing it? Of course, I
expect the answer to be "no"...

If there will be no fix, is there a good workaround?

Take a look at the form's 'AutoScale' property.
