I am using Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. The times new roman font skews the hyphen to the right side. For example "a-b", there will be an extra space after "a" that cannot be deleted and does not show up as a space but rather is built into the hyphen, making the hyphen skewed. I tried uploading an image but I don't have enough points. Anyone know what is going on and how to fix this?

I opened the file in OpenOffice and did not have this issue. I also opened LibreOffice in Linux distro and it didn't have the problem.

This is a display-only glitch on Windows, that is visible on some zoom levels. It should not affect printing.

I see no problem with "a-b" from your message. Share a problem file instead.

@Mike Kaganski Yea it seems to occur at 100% size. So I guess this is a glitch and I can't fix it. @gabix The display glitch is in Libre Writer, not in the post.
