    Mac MS office issue
    When i open a word document created in Mac on a PC, some of the words are combined or there are two spaces between words. Does anyone know what is causing this and is there a fix?

    Specs:
    27 iMac i5, MBP 13 & iMac 20, 2TB dual TC, AppleTV, iPh4S
    My fix for those sort of issues was to change to iWork which gives heaps of choices for saving.

    Well, if the OP doesn't have Pages....

    Have you tried saving as a pdf? If that comes out ok on the "PC" then you could copy and paste it into a Word file. It's just a work-around, but might be quicker than running Spell Check on the whole file to fix everything. Actually, that wouldn't fix the double spaces unless you did a replace " " with " ". (doesn't render two spaces here!)

    Specs:
    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    And better off by far not making multiple threads. Ask in PC forums perhaps?

    Well, if you find a magic solution, let us know! In the meantime, leave it in a mess. Or, you could try a w***-around just to see if it w***s.
