Bold Text May Generate Abnormal Spacing in Picture Window

PSS ID Number: Q101827 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 5.00 5.10 MACINTOSH kbgraphic

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 5.0 5.1

SYMPTOMS

Abnormal spacing may occur when you type bold text in Word’s picture window (opened with the Picture command from the Insert menu).

Inside the picture window, the bold text will look correct, but when the document is printed, the spacing between two bold text objects or a bold text object and an arrow may be twice as far apart as the screen indicates.

CAUSE

This problem may occur when both the TrueType and bitmap versions of the font being used are installed in the System.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for the Macintosh versions 5.0, 5.1. This problem was corrected in Word for the Macintosh version 6.0.

WORKAROUND

To correct the abnormal spacing, remove either the TrueType or the bitmap version of the font from the System Folder and retype the bold text in the picture window.
