Windows 8 provides three text size/DPI levels (smaller (100%), medium (125%) and larger (150%)) and an option to set a custom system text size.
When using for example a text size of 110%, in the IntelliSense tooltips and the Visual Studio settings window often the last word of each line is not displayed if the sentence takes more than one line - see screenshots.
Works fine with text size set to 100%.

Thank you for reporting this issue and using Visual Studio 2012! Unfortunately, Visual Studio does not support custom DPI settings very well. As a result, I will be closing this bug as Won't Fix since we do not have plans to address any custom (non-Windows default) DPI issues/bugs in the IDE. We suggest that you use a default Windows DPI (100% or 125%) when using Visual Studio. If you uncover specific issues using the 125% DPI setting, please log a new Connect bug so that we can take a look.
