I have some buttons/drop down lists created by the Control Toolbox in my excel spreadsheet.

I have 2 computers at work and I'm running Excel 2003 1) on a PC, 2) on a Mac (using a windows emmulator - VMWare)

Everytime I press a button on my spreadsheet on the Mac, the text in the button, or the drop down list mysteriously expands, or contracts. The button/box size may randomly expand or contract too.

When I save the file, and then open it on the PC, all the weird formatting is saved, but as soon as I resize the buttons, they are back to normal again(???)

can anyone help me here? it's very perplexing....?!?!
