Font format issues with VS 2012 Crystal Report

Really crazy thing is happening with a Crystal Report developed and run in VS 2012 (code is Visual Basic) from data stored in SQL 2012.

A text field, formatted to Arial 9 is printing in varied text sizes?

The same field, from the same table and the Crystal Report formatting the field to Arial 9 appears in different sizes on the same page?

Has anyone had this issue and resolved it?

Thank you,

Interesting! Any formulas on the formatting of that field that could change the font?

How are you printing?

Is this after printing or do you see it in preview?

Is this the full version of Crystal or the version for VS?

I am attaching screenshots, the difference appears in the Viewer, exporting to pdf and printing to printer.  This is a client based program, so the Viewer, pdf and the printer are the only places I know of to look at it.

The Crystal report is from and in the VS version for VS 2012.

There are no formatting formulas (that I am aware of), the one field is set to Arial 9 and producing varied results.

what is your default printer on that PC? Can you try a different default print (completely different that would use a different driver)?
To avoid printing differences, you need to develpp the report using the same printer selected as the report will be printed on.

There are known issues exporting to PDF with font sizes.  There is a registry change you can make to correct that issue.

Thank you for your thoughts/comments, we did find a conditional size formula that seemed to be the culprit
