On Windows 7 and Vista the Console cuts off the left- or right-most pixels of some words and numbers:


Loading this fix instructs the Console to use a different font resulting in more compact spacing and better drawing:



Replace the file "gtkrc" in the share\themes\MS-Windows\gtk-2.0 folder under the Console installation location (e.g. C:\Program Files\Attix5 Backup Professional Console).

The updated file can be downloaded here.

This fix works for both V5 and V6 Consoles.  From SP Console this is built-in.
