My username is rejected. Therefore, I cannot sign in to ask anything. My user name is my email address, <private information removed for privacy protection>.

Letters sometime leave spaces between them.

I retagged your question because it is not related to Writer but to this site.

You want to receive spam? Using your mail address as a username is really not a safe thing to do. Please read - and put some effort in writing your question. We want to help you, but none of us is psychic. We can't see what's happening on your screen. So please, give a better description of your problem.

The user name is an alias so you don't get spam. If someone answers your question you will get an email from ask.LibreOffice.

If someone comments your question, say to ask for more information, you will not get an email so keep coming back to check the status of your question.

Another user can send you an email by prefixing your user name with @ in a comment on your question.

I suppose that "Letters sometime leave spaces between them" is actually the question that Duh wants to ask.

@Duh If the question is

Letters sometime leave spaces between them.

Then turn on Formatting marks (View > Formatting marks or the icon). If there are no spaces showing (small blue dot in centre of line) but there are apparent spaces then it is formatting.

Probably, the easiest is to select the words with apparent spaces between letters and press Ctrl+M. That will remove direct formatting.

If there are large spaces between words, then it might be the paragraph is Justifed; select the text and press Ctrl+L to left align it (will have ragged righthand edge).

@Duh: edit your question to clarify. As you can see from the comments, contributors hesitate between a question about AskLO login (a username issue) or about formatting in Writer (justification enabled?).

While editing, mention OS name and LO version. Add any information describing exactly what you are doing and what you get. Anything helping to understand the problem is helpful: remember we can't see your screen and hands. In this time of lockdown, our crystal balls have been switched off!
