Check your Vision/Fonts folder and see if there's a '75Dpi' folder. If not, copy it from another XVision installation or reinstall XVision to get that smaller font size. It seems that sometimes the installation screws up and forgets to install that font size.

actually the xvision installer seems mildly brain damaged and will not install the 75dpi fonts if you choose the "typical" installation option...you need to select the "custom" installation option and then manually select the 75dpi fonts...the star-cd installation notes specifically instruct you to use the custom installation option for xvision if you install it manually.

i always find it funny that the main problem it seems with any engineering package (CAD, CFD, FEA) is never the package itself it is always the anoying little programmes that it requires to run around it (Xwindows and licence managers), these are the things that without fail break down and without fail take ages to fix because there is no logical explanation for them going tits up!!
