I have also found this problem.. I really dont know, for me typing the history is way to hard because an enter takes a lot of space.. dunno how they want us to write on bullet style or even on paragraph.. i guess we have to be good at summarizing

the practice software is flawed.
faced a similar problem during practice of my own test.

THIS DOESNT HAPPEN ON THE REAL TEST.


when you are practicing just type non stop --- to practice for speed etc.
the spacing wont be a problem on the actual test

good luck!

That is correct, but yet you have to know, when you press enter still takes some space, although the space on real exam is a lot more.
