I emailed a document to a friend, for translation and proofing in Spanish. When she opened it, some of the words are all squished together, without the normal spacing.

Como reglageneral,nuestrapalabra siempredebe glorificarelIntercesorde los santos, más que el acusador(oAcurser) de los hermanos.Sin embargo, como vimos en el estudio sobreLashonhara,hay momentos en losque estamoséticamenteobligados adecircosas negativas.Por ejemplo,si sabemos quealguien es undepredador, o es egoísta, estamos éticamenteobligados aadvertir a nuestroshermanos


What is causing the words to run together? And how do I stop it? Thank you.

Thanks for responding. It was a Word 2010 .docx attached to an email. I believe she opened it in Word 2007 (which does not normally cause an issue). I have another editor who opens in Word 2007 all the time, without issue.

If that is not the solution:
Has this happened more than once?  
Try sending a different .docx file to this recipient and also to yourself.  What happens?
Look at the new .docx file before you send it.
And look at the original .docx file ( assume you kept a copy) before you sent it.
Is this happening with more than one recipient?  Versions of Word before 2007 may not be able to handle .docx.

That sounds like it might be it. Please let me write my friend, and see if she has SP2 installed (or if she will install it). I will try to get back with you as soon as I know. Thanks!
