First, I have noticed, with Word 2010 (this did not happen in Word 2003), that the space between words is not even. Some words appear much too close together, both in print on and screen. I use Times New Roman, font 12.
Second, I had the following line in Times New Roman, Font 12 with 1" margins on 8.5" x 11" page, left aligned.
pending against her in the Xxxxx Municipal Court related to the auto accident she had on March
I wanted the date to all be on the same line so I attempted to adjust the right margin in that paragraph so the it would force the word "March" onto the next line. Instead, Word automatically condensed the word "March" and kept it on the same line. When I adjusted the margin just a little more, it did wrap to the next line. But I was surprised to see that it AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTED the condensing of the word. However, when I went to the condensing and scaling feature dialog box, it said "100%" and "normal."
My questions are:
1. Is it just Times New Roman that does this automatically?
2. How can I get even spaces between words in this font?
3. Can I stop it from automatically condensing?
What I have read so far, people are talking about left or right "justifying." I believe this is incorrect terminology. "Justify" is when both left & right are straight. I believe the correct terminology is left and right aligned. These only "align" on one side. And the alignment does not effect the issue.
