It could be a font substitution problem. Are you sure the font you are
using is installed on the "new" Windows 10 machine? It may be that the
font you are requesting in your document does not exist on your PC and
when the font is substituted by LO, you get something that has this
behaviour. This could explain why it is working correctly on your Mac
since the font is most probably installed there.

I hope this helps.

I have installed the latest safe edition of LibreOffice on my wife's
Windows 10 machine and she is getting very strange behaviour in
connection with line spacing.

She is used to putting two carriage returns between paragraphs, as I
but what happens is that, when she inserts one return, the text moves
down to the next line.  When she inserts two, it jumps down an
long way.  The cursor also appears to be set for about 72 point
typeface, which I suspect is part of the problem.  When she inserts
returns, the second one appears below where the bottom of the
one was.

I have suggested that we change the paragraph format to include a few
milimetres of space below the text of a paragraph but this does not
solve the problem of inserting two carriage returns.

I don't seem able to replicate the problem on my Mac, which is
version (don't know offhand what version she is using, but I
downloaded it a couple of weeks ago).

As always when something goes wrong, she's working under extreme time
press and needs to get an exam paper prepared for tomorrow, so I'd
appreciate it if someone can help fairly quickly.

Thanks in advance.
