Using the Windows 10 built-in "Fax" printer in Draft (200x100 dpi) quality there are character spacing problems. These problems do not occur in Normal (200x200 dpi) quality.
This is similar to bug 124123 regarding Dymo LabelWriter with non-square dpi, but much easier to reproduce since everything needed to reproduce it comes with Windows.
On the other hand, bug 124123 affects the best resolution supported by the Dymo printer whereas this bug affects the worst resolution of the Fax printer.
Of the versions available in the "old" download archive, I have narrowed down the regression to between 188.8.131.52.alpha1 (good) and 184.108.40.206.beta1 (bad). This may have to do with the fact that the dots in this resolution are rectangular (dpiX != dpiY).
The odt files needed to reproduce it are in the attached archive as well as the output tif files under 220.127.116.11.alpha1, 18.104.22.168.beta1, and 22.214.171.124.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the file Portrait.odt.
2. Click File, Print.
3. Ensure the "Fax" printer is selected.
4. In the Properties, ensure:
Paper size: Letter
Image quality: Draft (200x100 dpi)
5. Notice that the preview area shows lots of problems.
6. Click Cancel if prompted for Fax Setup.
7. When the New Fax dialog appears, drag and drop the .tif attachment to your Desktop, etc.
8. Open the .tif in a graphics program.
Repeat steps for Landscape.odt with Orientation: Landscape in step 4.
(1) Bad kerning, such as between "i"/"m" and "i"/"n".
(3) Too much spacing between all letters.
(1) Bad kerning, such as between "m" and "p"
(3) Too little spacing between all letters.

Would be good to get a bibisect for this as well in the way I mentioned in bug 131037 comment 6
Adding Keywords: bibisected

I have bibisected. As suspected, bug 124123 has identical.
