Waty, I test Your solution but the forms under MDIForm are resizing greater than was design. For example: I create them in resolution 800X600 and small fonts, but , When I configured Large fonts, was generated a problem. All fonts and Controls are displaying wrongs,unproporcional... Can You send me a source code
fixing fonts for all controls in project when it Starts ?

"No sizable" only used to don't let user resize use mouse, but you can use code to resize it or call it's resize event procedure.

If the project was design with small fonts, and the user modify
for large fonts all the forms will display unproporcional, ok ?
Please,
Can You send me a source code fixing fonts for all controls in project when it Starts ?

Unluckly, I don' have code to do that, but by modifying the class I gave you, you could do it easily.
