Looking for a way to display a full length bio onscreen
 
Atari is running a contest that involves submitting two screenshots: One of your character and one of your character's bio. You're supposed to be allowed as much space for the bio as you can enter.

I can't get more than two paragraphs of my bio onscreen at once, even stretching the windows out. Is there an option to adjust font size? Is there an option I'm missing? Is it a resolution thing, as I can only get the game to work on one resolution on my laptop?

"brevity is the soul of wit."

maybe your bio shouldn't be longer than 2 paragraphs. Longer isn't always better. Certainly you want your character to have a interesting and illustrious career-- but as an example, I bet you could sum up Jean Luc Picard's career in 2 paragraphs, and it would still nail all the high points without seeming short.

just a thought.

True, true. Anyone know any tips for fitting just a bit more onscreen though? I got some very Trek details I don't want to sacrifice even if I do shorten it.
