    Randomly condensed fonts (Word XP)

    Anyone heard of font condensing (or equivalent) flicking on & off for "no" reason?
    Typist prints doc - everything squashed up. Sends me a copy - its ok. She prints again and its's ok.
    This happens to three different people at odd intervals.

    Hi Judith:
    No, I haven't heard of it before, but check Tools/Templates & add-ins/ & make sure that Automatically update document styles is UNchecked. Also, compare Tools/Compatibility Options... between the different computers. It may be that one has the option don't expand character spaces on the line ending Shift-Return. There may be other option differences. Also, turn on show/hide so you can actually see what's happening & perhaps bring up the font dialog box to see if the fonts are condensed or expanded.

    Is this related to the printer driver used?
