Property Tab Text Box adding extra spaces

I am using SW2011 with SP3

 

We are noticing an odd behavior with our property tab. It is adding extra spacing between words in some cases. We have a text box for Description. The definition of the element in the PT Builder is about as basic as it can get (see image below). This and the Part Number elements are the only two that get filled in by typing. All the others are filled in from drop-down lists, check boxes, calendars, etc. The Part Number does not have any spaces.

 

But the description seems to add two spaces instead of one. Flaky keyboard? We see this behavior on all our CAD stations and only with this element. Don't see double spacing in other software products or other places in SW.

 

Is it consistent? No. I really noticed this when I checked a group of files into the vault. They had identical descriptions with only a few characters sequencing through a range of numbers. But with all these descriptions lined up in the vault view window you could see the non-consistent spacing.

 

Anyone else seeing anything like this?

 

Thanks, Daen
