I am experiencing a problem of typing for example "complete" one on top of the other (each on a line of print) and the spacing is different between the two. I am experiencing it in Word, Corel, etc. So I assume this is the Windows XP. Anyone know how to fix it?

I don't quite understand what you are describing. Is there any way you can copy/paste some text showing us what the problem is?

I think what Doug is trying to say is that the lines is different. For example (exaggerated):



Before anything, I would try clearing the temporary files as they always seem to mess with the settings on such programs.
  • Click on your Start menu and select Run.
  • Type into the run box cleanmgr and hit OK.
  • A window will pop-up asking which drive you want to clean. Select your operating drive. This is usually C:. If you are unsure, right click on your Start Menu and select Open. In the first part of the adress you will see your operating drive letter.
  • The wizard will proceed to estimate the amount of space it can clear on that drive.
  • After that is done, which should only take a moment, you will be asked to choose what thingsyou wish to clean. Put a check mark beside Temporary files. Also check any other ones you wish to clear.
  • Hit OK to start the cleaning. The window will close itself upon completion.
With Regards,
The Panda

Word has its own line-spacing adjustment, perhaps that's set to double-space rather than single-space.

I don't know about Corel, but if it's a document-producing program...I suspect it's similar to Word. What specific Corel program?
