Thanks for the report. I have tried to reproduce this on Windows 7 but am not sure if I fully understand what is happening on your system. A couple of questions:

  1. Are you moving the window directly from the full screen mode to the other monitor or are you un-maximizing it before?
  2. When having moved the window on the new monitor, what size does it have (the one before maximizing or another one)?
  3. I guess you mean space characters in the editor widget by "space characters that were visible"?
  4. If it is the editor, does the issue also happen, when the editor is floating (not docked in the main window) and you maximize, move and re-maximize the editor window?
  5. Which font are you using?

When octave GUI is opened fullscreen on one monitor, un-fulscreened, moved to another monitor, and full-screened again, all space characters that were visible when moving the window are rendered as tabs instead. Changing text size and then changing it back fixes the issue.

Problem on Windows 10 with a Dell XPS and Dell monitor.
