word spacing

  roymack 22:03 25 Mar 2007

Am having trouble with my word processing.
When i type and finish a word and click the space bar, it goes forward 1 space and then 4 quick spaces in WORD and also in Outlook Express.
I must have inadvertantly clicked on something but i can't find it anywhere, can anybody help.

Have a look in tools, auto-correct and see what is there with a blank space; could be something added there.

For example, you can tell auto-correct to replace x with y so somehow it may be replacing [space] with [space space space space space].

Just a thought...

There should be a Default Document that you can create, so that when you click new it goes back to defaults. I use Corel WordPerfect 8 Mine is under File\Document\Currant Document Style

have been into autocorrect but nothing seems to make any difference
this is the spacing after everyword.
Thanks fortrying anyway

Why not check the Help out, for Word Spacing or look for Kerning

Have loaded a form letter that I have used for over a year and it is doing the same thing in that, does not seem to have a default page

Try deleting the normal template - find a file called "normal.dot" and rename to normal.old

Start word and it will recreate the file for you.

If your problem is in Word, have you tried Format/Font/Character Spacing which, for example, should be: Scale 100%,Spacing Normal, Position normal.
