> Hi all - I have a Word-specific question I'm hoping one of you experts
> can help me with.
> I have Word 97 template which uses a custom numbering sequence for the
> appendixes (Outline Numbering>Custom). For example, style A1 numbers
> sections as A.1, A.2, B.2, style A2 = A.1.3, B.2.4 etc.
> All of this works very well except for one recurring problem - the
> typeface spacing is completely wild on *some* headings which use this
> complex numbering. It never occurs in the main body of the document,
> where I use Heading 1, 2 etc. (same typeface and sizing conventions).
> I'm using basic Arial for all headings, outline numbered and custom
> numbered. On screen and in print preview everything looks fine. When I
> print (to any printer - I've tried several, both PCL and PS) the text
> looks approximately like this:
> A.1 Calibrated Test Equipmen t
> or
> A.2.3 Input Acquisition and Outp ut Si gnals
> This phenomenon does not occur in every heading. But it is
> consistent - the same headings are wonky every time. It's not letter
> pairs either - "signals" is spaced out in one heading, but fine in
> another. I have changed the font to several things (all True Type, PS is
> not an
> option) and the same problem occurs. I've tried deleting the headings
> and retyping, cutting and pasting, checked the numbering, anything I can
> think of.
> Any thoughts or suggestions?
