  1. Fonts not appearing correct

    Quite often my fonts show up in some words "squished" together. Sorry not quite a technical term.

    I tried to copy and paste an example but they copy just fine without the "squish". Have tried changing the

    font but doesn't help.

    Am using an insider version of windows. Latest on Fast but this happened awhile back. I see that a couple

    of letters are appearing that way in this post now.

    Its like they are "piggy-backing" on each other. Yup another technical term I use.

    Thank you
