I am using Microstation V8i SS2.
I am new to Microstation and trying to understand certain details concerning text. I have been working with the text editor and notice that whenever I add a space between text, sometimes I get a "1/64" and sometimes not. Also, spacing in the finished text appears odd, like larger than required spaces between text sometimes. What does the "1/64" mean and how do I get more even spacing between text?
I know it appears in our AZ DOT config also. Here's a screen shot for those unfamiliar. The 1/64 flashes in the text window, but does not show when placed. I never noticed it affecting text spacing. Is the spacing issue more of proportional/non-proportional fonts in use, so the spacing seems off?
The text spacing issue seems odd. Attached is a screen shot of word spacing that is not even. I believe all the fonts of each word are the same. Is there a way to fix that so all spaces between words are even?

I've used that variable in the past. For our DOT, they redefined characters such as \ for CL, [ for +/-, etc, so you lose that in the editor. The placed text still works, though.
I don't have the 1/64 issue in our current config using SS3. Using SS1 and the old, replaced config will produce that in the editor, as shown in the previous screen shot. That config was such a mess, I don't even want to try to dig through it to figure out if a setting caused the issue.
Current IE 11.0.9600.18053
I attached the ADOT fontlib if you wish to fiddle with it.
