I'm writing LaTeX using LyX on Macintosh, and in Hebrew. My problem is that when exporting the document I get bigger spaces between my Hebrew letters than if compiling the same file on a Windows machine, with MiKTeX. The problem is not specific to LyX; even when I export a LaTeX file I see the same difference in letter spacing. Where can I change the spacing between the letters?

Welcome to TeX.SX! ... Can you reproduce the problem with just a LaTeX file? It would help if you could provide a Minimal Working Example (MWE)Also, which TeX distribution are you using on each of the machines? – einpoklum Aug 24 '12 at 19:55
what do you mean by just a LaTex file? I have MacTex 2010 on the macintosh, and on the windows machine there's MikTex 2.9. I could provide 2 pdf files and you could see the differences - is that what you mean? – roi.holtzman Aug 25 '12 at 20:09
I meant export to LaTeX instead of all the way to a PDF. LyX should have this capability. – einpoklum Aug 26 '12 at 21:15
i saw that i can export to LaTex file. but what should i do with the file? i don't see even how to upload it here. – roi.holtzman Aug 27 '12 at 22:41
Try to compile the file with both MaCTeX and MiKTeX. Assuming you get the same results, we've begun to narrow down the problem. Then try to minimize the file as much as possible (see the MWE link above). Finally, edit your question and add its contents as a source block. – einpoklum Aug 28 '12 at 12:49
