    (setq dp (vlax-get (vlax-get (vlax-get-acad-object) "Preferences") "Display"))
    (vlax-put dp "TextFont" "Fixedsys") ;;; Sets font
    (vlax-put dp "TextFontSize" 12) ;;; Sets font size
    (textscr)

    Thank you for the info, however I am actually trying to control the actual
    vertical and horizontal
    size of the text screen itself. It seems that when this screen is called
    from an autolisp function, that
    it becomes un-sizeable and therefore I have to make sure all my lines of
    text fit in it when it pops up.
    Any thoughts?

    (setq dp (vlax-get (vlax-get (vlax-get-acad-object) "Preferences")
    "Display"))
    (vlax-put dp "TextFont" "Fixedsys") ;;; Sets font
    (vlax-put dp "TextFontSize" 12) ;;; Sets font size
    (textscr)

    Sorry, I misread...

    I believe you will have to use some windows API calls to control the actual window size.
