Kerning in LibreOffice is still an issue. Because of such spacing between characters it is very hard to read the text.
Steps to Reproduce:
Run Gedit and LibreOffice and compare font rendering.
Eyes not hurts.
User Profile Reset: Yes
Comparison between font rendering in Gedit and LibreOffice in Fedora 29 Workstation:

Confirm this is a major issue on 220.127.116.11 on CentOS7.
Kerning is laughably bad both with and without pair kerning on. Makes LibreOffice simply unusable for preparing a professional-looking document.
As far as I'm concerned, this is a major or critical issue. Placing characters on the page is the whole point of a word processor. If it can't do that properly...
Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

It's happening in 6.2, as I said. Unless the font rendering engine was completely replaced between 18.104.22.168 and 6.2.2 (seems improbable), I don't think this should have been changed to NEEDINFO.
This bug has existed for quite some time, it's not like this cropped up in the 6.1 version user Artem is using or something. It's been like this for years.
@Xisco Faulí, unfortunately it still.
