Why is it that when someone sends me Word documents they appear differently on my computer? For example, the spacing is off. On my screen or when I print the document, some words will not have any spaces between them; however, it appears correctly with appropriate spaces between words on their computer & prints.  Both computers are using office 2007

    Do you use any language other than English?
    Try using Control+Shift+N together when you're in the document.

    Good luck!

    This may be because the other users have different fonts installed.  If the font you selected is not available on another computer, another font will be used instead, which can result in strange spacing.
