    What type of system are you using? Laptop or desktop? What software are you using(xp, vista, word, etc) Did this keyboard come with an install CD and did you install the drivers if "yes"?

I just acquired a Royal Futura 800 manual typewriter. The problem is that I'm having space skips between letters, sometimes as many as 2 or 3 spaces between letters in a word.

Can be your touch first, need to snapply depress and let go of the key.
2. if you type 12 h's in a row and it skips you more than likely have a broken escapement gear. Not really fixable.
But it would be the same every time if you continued typing say 24 h's.

Or your machine is gummed up.

My Smith Corona Galaxie 12 malfunctions by automatically adding spaces between letters while I type. How do I fix this?

Did you ever get a resolution to the added space problem? I just purchased an old Smith-Corona Super Sterling and it is doing the exact same thing.

Sometimes my typewriter advances too much between letters.

The escapement might need adjustment. Try striking the key briskly and not holding it down so it double types leaving a space.

My computer misses letters and spaces when I type

Does it only do it when you are on line? If so it could be that your browser is low on resources due to pop ups, ads, etc. Google ad block for your specific browser to block out the garbage and free up your browser. Does wonders.

Olivetti Lettera 22 skipping spaces

Thje problem with this machine is that you need to use a fast pecking motion when typing. If you press and linger on the keys for too long this will cause an extra space.

Lettera 22 - sips and adds spaces on occassion

If it skips at the same place or skips every 10 or 12 spaces all the time it is a broken tooth on the escapement wheel or rack. It could be in typing you are lingering on the key causing it to spring back a little ans space over.
