Hello! I have started having a strange problem. When I type in Firefox and Text Edit it automatically gives me huge leading when I type. It gives me around 100pt leading. Any ideas how I can fix it? It doesn't happen in my other programs. Thanks for any ideas!

    Hello,

    Does it give the same leading if you Paste text into Text Edit?

    What font are you using???
    It sounds like a font mess-up
    In text edit, what font does it say it's using???

    Then look in your Font Book application
    for all versions of that font. You might have one corrupt one,
    or duplicates.

    I'm overwhelmed. (Hi there, BD
    Seriously, 4 --
    That weirdo leading has been reported here (and solved) quite a few times.

    So, could you tell us what happened exactly???
    I know it would help a bunch of other readers here.
