 P4W 5.0: Problem with re-sizing fields/fonts

I'm having a problem with field sizes on a form in Paradox 5.0 and
would like to hear from anyone who's had the problem (and,
preferably, someone who's also solved it).

I have a form with a table in its data model, and there are fields on
the form corresponding to the fields in the table.  The problem
occurs when I change the font size of a field.

All of the fields have the "word wrap" option deselected, yet when I
change the font to 8-pt., the field decides that it can't fit on one
line and becomes a two-line entry field.  And the "word wrap" option
automagically selects itself.  Actually, any point size of 7 or
smaller works OK, but 8 or larger is a mess.

I've grouped all common fields on the form with a box, but the box is
PLENTY large enough to accommodate the new size of the field, so
that's not the problem.

What it boils down to is that I've got to do a lot of manual work on
the fields to get them to the size I want.  I'm in the development
stages of a new app, so this is getting to be quite a pain.

What I've found is that if I make the box surrounding the fields
IMMENSE (say, as wide as the screen will allow, for a 2-inch-long
field), then the new font size won't cause a wrap.  Have looked at
the manuals, but they're not too deep when it comes to font size,
field size, etc.  Is this a known bug, or have I missed something
obvious?

TIA for any advice.

I've had similar problems.  Turn the 'fit to size' property OFF
in the fields.  Now they WON'T resize whenyou change fonts.
