I recently installed Dreamweaver CS4 on a Win 7 laptop and noticed that some of the elements on the properties pane are half obscured so you can't see them (see highlight in attached screenshot).  I've tried moving the panel to other parts of the screen and tried to see if I could drag to expand it, but nothing seemed to work.

Have you customized your theme or windows settings at all?  Perhaps try this:

Right-click an empty space on the desktop, and then click Properties.
On the Themes tab, click Windows Classic in the Theme box.
Click OK.

reload the application...

The computer was already set up in Windows Classic.  I did that the other day.  But I did it again just to be sure.  Doesn't change anything. Sorry.

Try setting the theme back to the fancy, then perhaps re-install the app?  Also, I have had similar issues occur that were related to the 'user' account being used.  Create a new user on your machine and try the application logged in to that user.

the problem was that the windows fonts were set to "extra large", changing this setting and hooking up a larger monitor instead has solved the problem

Glad you figured it out, I knew it was a system setting or customization of some sort!

This turned out to be a customization setting as I said previously, points should be awarded.  Thanks.
