    Letters don't place properly on the pages. Is this a known issue?

    Yup it's an EC problem.. Books written in CC and read in CC work fine.
    But if you write it in the CC and I try to read it in the EC it's got weird spaces and tabs.. hard to read.
    Likewise if I write it in the EC, using short sentences and spaces between lines.. you can read it well in the EC. But it won't look good if you read it in the CC..

    Kinda sucks cause I roleplay and books are important.. but we make do.

    It's a VERY known issue.... we've complained about it since the beta... for all the good it does.
