I've found, in general, that Windows point sizes do not match Mac sizes 
and that I need to leave extra width available on fields to account for 
the additional width when the stack is run on a Windows machine. Another 
approach is to set the textsize of the stack or card based on the 
platform, sizing it downward for Windows.
