Presenter inserting spaces in text

Apr 16, 2012

Hello! Does anyone know why Presenter sometimes inserts extra spaces between words in a text box when publishing a presentation? And more importantly, how can the issue be corrected?

Hi Paul - I'm glad you found the answer. I'm adding some general suggestions for resolving the issue. If you used a different approach, can you share the solution here, too?

You can usually resolve the issue by adding .1 pt character spacing to the text box:

And Dave Burton created a macro that automates the workaround mentioned above

Hello Jacqueline and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your text and publishing.

This thread is a bit dated. Can you share some additional information so that we can understand what may be going on? What text are you utilizing?

If you could share your Articulate Package, that would be helpful as well.

Hi Jacqueline,

I'm so sorry this is plaguing you! I know that's got to be frustrating, and I'm here to help.

We haven't seen a text spacing or formatting issue in Presenter 360, so I'd be interested to take a closer look at your file. You can attach it in the thread, or click here to share it with me privately. 

As for the missing "i" problem, we've seen that pop up particularly with Storyline 2 courses with HTML5 in Chrome, so I'll investigate that in your file, as well.
