I can't reproduce it on my system. LO, Ubuntu 14.04LTS

For your information, it seems I have the behaviour with LO (on
W10) and (on Linux). What is interesting is that it occurs
regardless of the letter that is larger in size (e.g. in the sentence
"This is a test", you will see it happen when the point size of the
letter 's' is changed). This does not occur when Drop Caps is used.

Yes, anytime I copy anything from a Word file, I paste it using
special" and then "unformatted text." Word and LO work differently
enough that the last thing I want is Word's formatting codes messing
my styles.

I'm not sure how it happened, but I'd bet that the .docx school logo
what messed you up. It may be that, by copying that image, you copied
lot of other stuff as well.

Absolutely right, Virgil, and that's the advice I gave when we
discovered the
problem.  That's the way I work:  a composition phase followed by a
formatting phase.  And, yes, I do, on bigger jobs, create paragraph
through, usually, paragraph formatting, sometimes with
styles.  Personally I
usually go for a 1 cm (or so) first line indent and no extra line
However, this was, as you said, a rush job, and all the worse for
my wife
not having used LO before.

Your comment on the source is quite possibly also valid, for the
first thing
she did was to import the school logo at the top of the document
from an old
docx Word document.  I hadn't actually thought about that, and that
account for the problem.  Perhaps a way round this in future if she
anything from Word might be to select and copy all from the Word
and paste special, I think it is, into the .odt document.
