> 1. Click in a sample body text paragraph.

> 3. Now, in the Advanced tab of the Paragraph Designer, check the Allow
> Automatic Letter Spacing checkbox. Some lines in the paragraph jump back

> those are the lines that lose justification.
> Justification and Automatic Letter Spacing used to work together. Now,
