Microsoft Dynamics CRM windows within the Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook client don't render correctly when the zoom level for the system display is great than 100%.
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM windows are a defined sized. When the zoom is increased, the text gets expanded within the window but the window doesn't resize.
To solve this issue, set the Display zoom back to 100% by following these steps:
- On a client machine with the CRM Outlook client configured, select Control Panel.
- Select Appearance and Personalization.
- Select Display.
- Select Smaller - 100%.
- Select Apply.
- Sign out of the workstation.
- Sign in back on the workstation.
The biggest issue this shows up for are Look Up windows. For instance, when a user is creating an email within Outlook with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook add-in enabled, they can select Set Regarding. After doing that, the lookup window pops up and the Look For drop-down is now missing.
