Description Braciolo 2018-02-19 13:55:17 UTC
In the text justified on some occasions (see example) it is difficult to point a character to edit it.
The "character pointing scheme" is not aligned with the text and this produces difficulties in the case of editing the text. If you point to a certain character to eliminate it, the result is to delete a different character shifted by some forward or backward positions. For example (see attached file): if you want to delete the character "(" and point to the immediately preceding position and press "delete" the result is the deletion of the last character "a" of the word "Settimana"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using the attached file, try to delete char "("

Actual Results:  
The deleted character is another

Expected Results:
the deleted character is the one selected

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
 Using the attached file, with the same font.

Can’t reproduce with 6.2, looks like a duplicate of bug 105913, re-open if you can reproduce.
