Hello, 


The labels on our likert-scale cover the numbers on the scale on some computer monitors but not others. How do I make sure that the labels are in proportion to the size of the numbers on the scale no matter which size monitor the survey is presented on?


My script is pasted below. I would be so grateful for any advice!

#1: Make sure all your positions and sizes (including anchorwidth) are expressed in percentages.


#2: See the documentation for the <defaults> element's /canvassize and /canvasaspectratio attributes.
