Strange spacing between numbers

Previous topic - Next topic


Hi all

This might be a stupid question, but I found nothing with search. So when I write or paste numbers in the text box, they show up like there is a space between them, when in reality there is not. If a single number is between letters, it shows up normally. It is wysiwyg, so it also prints like it shows on screen. Very annoying.

All other programs show these numbers correctly if I copy and paste them from scribus. I've never had this problem before, and I've been using Scribus for about ten years.

I tested versions 1.4.6 and 1.4.8, no difference. This must be some basic setting or something I just can't figure out. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

hi franz

if things do not work with scribus 1.4, you're welcome to try out scribus 1.5 (currently 1.5.8, 1.6 soon).


did you try different fonts?
any hints if you turn on the View>Text Frames>Show Control Characters?
any hints in the Story Editor?

sorry, just some spaghetti thrown at the wall


I think patjr's suggestion is best, something extra is being added to your input.
What os are you using? any addons to it? (i'm thinking clipboard addons)
