I agree 11 cpi would never result in 11 cpi for chars and 10 cpi for spaces. But that is the net result. Apparently when OS maps out the fields, it uses the single font-id pitch that the printer file was created with to size the fields. I have a 30 char NAME field, it plots it on the paper as 30 char / 10 cpi = 3 inches. When I change the pitch to 11, it still seems to allocate the 3 inches to the NAME field - but the name only takes 2.7 inches width. So now there is 0.3 inches of space between the name and the next field.
