Anyone want to venture a guess why I have random capital letter Gs scattered around my program screens?

Sesame Street was brought to you today by the letter "G"?

That is weird.  And funny.

That's a printer font problem. The fonts from the software are not sent properly.

Reboot everything.

I dont have a printer connected, so I dont know if they print on the actual return...I just see them scattered all over the screen.

I thought I spotted a random capital A somewhere too, but I couldn't find it again when I went looking later.

Those aren't G's, they're flyspecks.  Mark of the devil.

I had something similar this year.  On 02/17/2020 ProSeries Customer Support (actually got through to a knowledgeable person) sent me a Font Check and a series of Fonts that got screwed up in a Windows Update.  There was just a recent update by Microsoft so you may have had that issue crop up.  My suggestion is to keep trying technical support and see if downloading and installing their specific font list fixes the problem.  It did for me.

You are just a font of knowledge, with your knowledge of fonts.

I'm not a "font" of knowledge, but based on the initial post I know how to handle that G-spot.......  No, I didn't just say that, did I?
