I dont think so as that is a layout mode functionality.
If you have access to FM10, try a Save a Copy As... (Compacted). Then test the compacted copy. That may be able to repair the problems.
Save As Compact on WinXP did not work.
Recover on WinXP did not work.
A WARNING was given to use a backup.
Tranferred to Mac opened in FMP 10 Adv.
VERY SLOW redraw, same symptom (font unknown).
I was able to sneak up on it and delete the layout without the constant redraws in WinXP that prevented deletion.
Copied back to WinXP.
Fixed the problem in the FMP 5.5 version, converted to FP7.
Copied layout contents to current version.
Recovered Twice. Seems stable.
Weird, never seen this type of curruption before.
