[Solved] Space bar inserts only one space, then gets stuck

Postby Hlaford » Thu Jan 11, 2018 11:45 am

Hi there,

My problem is: I can`t move my cursor in a Writer document by the space bar. I mean, I can move it only one space forward, and after that, no matter how many times I hit the space bar, the cursor stays on the same place (i.e. I can`t move any word forward, for example, I have to hit the Tab button in this case).

Is it something normal?

Thank you!

Solved. I had to untick "ignore double spaces" option under Tools -> AutoCorrect Options. Now everything is OK.
