mforms30 / Motif version problem on DECstation

Mike Anthis (anthis_at_sleepy.ns.cs.boeing.com) was having a problem with fonts on a SUN. I reported a similar problem on a DECstation, but included an error.

I am having a similar problem with the Motif version on a DECstation 5000/25. Perhaps this has already been answered, I am late reading these postings, and will see a reply later. However, on the DECstations, the fonts are not positioned properly in the boxes and the lower third to half of the field data is cropped by the lower edge of the box. I have tried varying fonts with Orakit modifier file, but no success as yet.

Also, only one field of a record gets displayed. Generally, when one hits Enter Query, all available fields of a record get displayed; in a spread ----------- < should have been Execute Query -- sorry for repost.> table of many rows, all get filled in. However, the Motif version does not so and only as one tabs to individual fields are they displayed. Running the character-mode of forms3.0 (vt100) works fine. Any suggestions??

Thanks kindly for any suggestions.
