Text block justification in AE broken

I'm not sure when this stopped working but lately I've been doing a lot of disclaimers and it seems like After Effects' justified text paragraph modes are broken (whether it's Last-Left, Last-Centered, Last-Right, or Justify All.) Words overflow out the right side of the text box, and I have to manually edit and shift-enter line breaks in after the next-to-last word on those lines (and then pull up the rest, which changes the results of subsequent lines, etc.)

 

I was still on AE 2023 but recently upgraded machines and got on 2024, going from Windows 10 to 11, but can say that it definitely was broken in 2023. Then I installed the current beta (24.2.0) to check and it's still broken there too:

As you can see the first line is fine, the next 4 aren't, the following 4 are, etc.

 

Font doesn't matter; size doesn't matter; changing either does give you different results obviously, but still will result in many jagged right-hand lines. Photoshop and Illustrator format correctly.

Hi idolum, could you zip up your project and DM it to me, making sure fonts are included. We'll have an engineer look at this.

(Sorry, I was looking at a different comp than the one of the screenshot I posted when describing which lines were fine and which weren't... oops! But you can obviously see 🙂 )

 

Sent a DM with a link to a zipped project. Thanks!
