How to select fixed character spacing instead of variable character spacing


I am composing a document and I want character spacing to be uniform, but all the settings I tried (format menu/character/position tab/spacing) give me variable spacing.

Please see the attached doc for details!

Hi @stevewebdevfl,
I just bumped-up your karma, and you should be all set to upload files now. No donation is necessary to use the site or software, but we are always very grateful for community contributions (as a volunteer, an advocate, a donor, etc…)


character spacing is a function of the font in use. you are apparently using a proportional font. i don’t know which fonts are non proportional; create a page and try out several. frankly as a retired “boss”, i would be inclined to consider a non proportional resume a negative. good luck

Fixed pitch fonts are also often called MONO. They include the old typewriter fonts. Some examples LibO are

Courier 10 Pitch

Courier New

Free Mono

Droid Sans Mono, and any other with MONO in the description.

Like @keng I would think it unusual to submit a CV in fixed pitch fonts like we used to have to do with typewriters.
If you need fix pitch fonts to align text, I suggest you use tabs which are designed for this purpose.
Anyway good luck… Peter
