But you may be right because Arial is a proportional font, and a string of "O" must be a little wider than a string of "N". The bug is in designer not in preview.

> 'sans-serif font' ? I presume you mean True Type Font? However to my knowledge both Arial an Times New Roman are True Type, please compare to Courier which is not.

Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman are TrueType (all three). There is bitmap font (not TrueType), named, simply, Courier.
It's easy to verify. Expand the font list in MsWord. All TrueType fonts have the TT icon to the left.
Courier New is monospaced while Arial and Times New Roman are proportional.
Arial is sans-serif (without the stripes) while Times New Roman is serif. Courier is also serif.

> The bug seems to be a bug with the Arial font in the Report designer, change to an other similar font like Segoe and all goes correct.

We agreed on that.
