attachment did not make it to this list. Sorry, that's just the state of
things, so it's necessary to be as descriptive as possible. To that end:

No, it's not justified. But where a line runs out and the whole word jumps
to the next line, here it breaks in the middle of the word, no hyphen (and
I have hyphenation turned off) leaving as little as a single letter before
going to the next line. I do notice now that the offending documents seem
to believe they're Japanese, which they're not.

In the screenshot paragraph I sent, the word "what" is divided at
w, "surrender" at surre, "brave" at bra, "involuntarily" at involuntaril
(with only the y bumped to the next line), "there" at th, and "story" at
st. Very weird. Is there a way to assure that the application does not
take it upon itself to change countries?

Created in LibreOffice Writer and saved as .doc. Opens and siaplays fine in
TextMaker, AbiWord, and Calligra, no issues.

Thanks for your help.
