I believe this is a function of right-to-left language settings.
See my page on alignment/justification.

The keyboard command, at least on my system, is Ctrl+Shift+J and this is called fully distributed text.

Any chance you have your text underlined?

Looking at your sample document, it is not the distributed text.
I can produce something similar using that feature and a space between each character.

Here is a temporary link to the document with this in it.

There is a single space between each character that is underlined.

This could also be a tab. http://wordfaqs.ssbarnhill.com/SettingTabs.htm

Otherwise to illustrate how it can be done:

Code: Select all

Sub M_snb()
   For j = 2 To 20 Step 4
     Paragraphs(1).TabStops.Add CentimetersToPoints(j), 0, 3
   Next
   Paragraphs(1).Range.Text = Join(Split("a b c d e f "), vbTab)
   Paragraphs(1).Range.Font.Bold = True
End Sub
