I was typing on Microsoft Word. I have justification set so that the text will not be ragged on either side. The spacing is extremely funky when I do this. For example:


The Comanches       were    extremely      strategic   in their...


And when I try to delete these spaces, it just puts the words together. It doesn't go back just one regular space, it goes back the whole huge space it automatically created. I want to keep the full justification, but I need to know how to get rid of this abnormal spaces. If anyone can help, that would be great!

Hi :welcome: to BleepingComputer


I would say that is normal with justification enabled specially if you use a big font size, sometimes hyphenation can help.


In certain situations for small cases you can force word to use a fixed with space by typing CTRL+SHIFT+Space instead of normal space.
