When using ClearType on Windows Anniversary, Excel column widths can become larger

Last updated: September 2016


When using ClearType with the Windows Anniversary update, Excel column widths can be larger than in earlier versions of Windows. This happens in only some fonts, such as Calibri. It can affect all versions of Office 2016. We are working on releasing a fix.

Status: Workaround

The workaround is to turn off ClearType, or switch to a font that gives your reports the appearance you want.
