This is driving me crazy. For some reason, my document formatting suddenly changes and I see lots of spaces between individual characters for any text with a Heading 1,2 or 3.

If I toggle the 'bold' state of the text, it reverts to normal..and then again after a few minutes it shows gaps. Is my Normal.dot screwed up somehow? I went to 'modify style' and 'format font' - but there too, the settings are all as default. Character spacing, positioning etc are all set to 'normal' and kerning for fonts is unchecked.

How do I fix this?

  • Yes to both..I was editing a set of really large documents at the time with loads of embedded images. – Rex Jan 3 '13 at 18:08

    No, I hadn't tried that before! I don't have any other large documents now to test out (that was while at work, and I no longer work there or use Word that extensively at my current job) but will keep this in mind next time, thanks! – Rex Jan 4 '13 at 19:24
