I am basing this test off of https://github.com/kakwa/libemf2svg/blob/master/tests/resources/emf/test-002.emf
The text is condensed and uses incorrect character spacing in the EMF+ file (see screenshot).
Steps to Reproduce:
Open the attached EMF+ file in Draw. Compare this against the EMF+ file I have embedded in the docx file in Word (only way you can get EMF+ files opened in Word now).
Text is condensed and has wrong character spacing.
Text should not be condensed, and spacing should be much closer together.

Test emf+ file in a Word document
Note - this is not an EMF+ file, as I originally assumed. This is a pure EMF file.
I can not confirm on Windows builds, current master/6.5.0 nor 220.127.116.11 on Windows 10 Home 64-bit en-US (1903)
The EMF renders cleanly to Draw canvas as fully shaped Arial strings. Not compression.
Dumping the EMF it is coded as Arial, and that is what you show in your Word clip, as well as in your Draw clip--except the Arial font is pretty badly rendered to canvas by import filter.
What happens if in LibreOffice you set a font table substitution for another macOS resident font? I just did on Windows builds with Linux Biolinum G for Arial -- replacements cleanly rendered.
Any improvement if something other than the EMF+ assigned font is used?

It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#129106 vcl: add SAL_INFO to show the dxArray intercharacter spacings
It will be available in 6.5.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
