Description boicottms 2018-09-28 08:54:45 UTC
Description:
Hello,
in my invoice model I have my IBAN number in the footer. The footer has forced justification and the IBAN code itself has a wide letter spacing (1.5 pt). 
I send the PDF/A-1, and I wish the client to be able to copy-paste the IBAN, but it comes with extra spaces between the caracters, as follows:
I T 0 0 N 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 X X X X X
Is this a pdf or libreoffice problem?
I attach both the writer document (with embedded fonts) and the ouput PDF.
I also attach a test file where this doesn't happen, and the result is as expected (no extra spaces)
Thank you

Actual Results:
letters have extra spaces in between

Expected Results:
letters should not have any extra space
