Windows 7 -  latest release. Writer - several different releases over last
6-8 months which was when I installed libre office on a new comp.

Background info: I'm a moderator for a writers workshop forum and we turn
our lessons into a PDF at the end of a workshop. 

When I copy/paste from chrome into writer I end up with small gray boxes
(one space height/width) scattered through my document. To get rid of them I
must either delete each one or paste to textpad and then back which of
course loses all formatting. I've also tried firefox and copy/pasting from
other forums/pages. I've even opened an emailed doc where the sender copied
from a browser and the boxes still show up. 

Libre must be converting some formatting marks but I have no idea which ones
or how to fix. The spaces show up on paragraph starts, and also inside
paragraphs. Most often where formatting of italics/bolds/dates/links start
but not always. 

I hope someone can help as I'm stumped and will have to return to open
office as this is a time sink. :(
