I have this problem when trying to do columns using word. I have been told
to use microsoft office. I have also tried to copy and paste text from
scanned documents into word, and I get the same thing that you do.
I too would love an answer to this problem.

I HOPE THAT THERE IS SOME-ONE OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP A COMPUTER-DUMB
PERESON. I AM WRITING A LOCAL HISTORY AND AM USING COREL'S WORD PERFECT
9. IT SEEMS TO WORK PRETTY WELL BUT WHEN I TURN IT OFF AND COME BACK THE
NEXT DAY AND TURN IT ON STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN. MY WHOLE PAGE HAS A
DIFFERENT LOOK-----MY PARAGRAPHS ALL START AT STRANGE LOCATIONS -- INDENTS
ARE OFF ---ETC. WELL SOMEONE TOLD ME IT HAS TO DO WITH THE COMPRESSION OF
THE TEXT THAT I AM WRITING AND THAT I SHOULD CHANGE TO MICROSOFT WORD.
I NOW HAVE THAT BUT WHEN I COPY MY PAGE ON WORD PERFECT NINE AND TRANSFER IT
I GET THE STRANGEST PAGE YOU EVER SAW. WHERE EVER I HAVE A SPACE BETWEEN
WORDS THERE ARE NOW STRANE SYMBOLS--- WHERE EVER I USE THE HYPHEN IT NOW IS
2 COMMAS. I REALLY DON'T FEEL THAT I CAN SPENT THE TIME TO GO OVER EVERY
PAGE OF AT LEAST 300 PAGES TO ELINIMATE THOSE AWFUL SYMBOLS. IF IT HELPS
ANYONE OUT THERE TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM I WOULD BE GLAD TO SEND AN ORIGINAL
PAGE AND T!
