I'm getting different paragraph spacing for different paragraphs, despite having run Convert to Default Formatting. The paragraphs appear to have identical styles. How can I change this so the characters don't run together? It looks like there's too little spacing between characters, even though both are Palatino 12. (See attachments.)

That looks like a kerning issue - one is clearly kerned tighter than the other. Do/did you make such changes in Word?
