Open Office font spacing problem
I installed Open Office 1.1 on my machine the other day and I'm having a very strange font spacing problem. Whether I'm creating a new document or editing an old one, everything looks like this: E v e r y t h i n g l o o k s l i k e t h i s.
I don't think it's a problem with my font server because every other aspect of my Desktop is just fine. Fonts are smooth and beautiful. But in Open Office (and only in the writer app by the way), everything is spaced apart. In the Spreadsheet app, everything is fine.
I tried deleting the OpenOffice directory off my home directory thinking some setting got screwed up. Then I ran it again but it didn't help. I've spent over an hour going through the menus trying to locate the problem. I've spent probably another 3 hours reading newsgroups, FAQ's, and howtos. I've done my homework. So the elitists among you can save your RTFM!! comments for someone else.
