Description Telesto 2017-08-10 09:20:50 UTC
Not sure if it's worth a report, but: the font spacing of some characters is changing slightly when changing the font color

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Select "hendrerit" (in the colored row) and set font color to black. Switch back and forward with CTRL+Z and CTRL+Y
Notice the change in position of the 'o' in dolor the 'E' of Etiam and the 'l' of aliquet.

Actual Results:  
Some characters are changing position

Expected Results:
Changing the font color shouldn't affect the spacing between characters (I suppose) 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I see the little shift. For inside the changed area it might be a result of different kerning. But I have no idea why a single character shifts, which is outside the changed area.

Example file two (Impress)

Similar or same behavior with Impress. The font spacing shifts a little when entering the title textbox, by clicking somewhere between AAAbbb. It seems depended on the zoomfactor. No issue with for example 91%-100%, but it happens with 40% or 110%
