.svg image to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:
- open writer
- insert the attached .svg file
- observe the word "PRÉCESSION"
=> there is the space before and after the "É"
Such spaces are not present when opening the file with, e.g. eog.
The svg has been produced by LibreOffice Draw.

Comment 6 Timur 2020-09-16 12:26:38 UTC
There was proper insert in LO 3.6.0, missing image in early 3.7 and 4.0, wrong EXCENCTRITÉ in LO 4.0.0, wrong PRÉCESSION in 4.2.0, then in 4.3.0 some regression not to have text, which was fixed in LO 4.4 to have text with this bug, as in LO 7.1+.

I tried to bibisect 1st change from good to missing and.... and found that "typo" is to blame :)

Range is too big. I set bibisected, but not bisected.

Goodbye gettext, glib, gdk-pixbuf, pango, libcroco, libgsf and librsvg
Now with librsvg no longer used, and liblangtag no longer using glib,
a bunch of bundled (in some configurations, always on some platforms)
3rd-party libraries are no longer needed.

Initial work by rene, continued by tml.
Comment 8 Timur 2020-09-16 13:06:02 UTC
2nd change was from missing image to bugged view. Again large scope.

Comment 9 Frederic Parrenin 2021-11-30 13:21:46 UTC
This bug is still present in 7.2.3.
Comment 10 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2022-11-23 09:18:11 UTC
Still some spacing issue in:

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: a41c82407bbb73a4d87070326485ec4b4e954a65
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

Not that zooming in and out changes the kerning around the accentuated characters.
Comment 11 Frederic Parrenin 2023-03-19 14:11:16 UTC
I cannot repro in 7.4.5.
Comment 12 Frederic Parrenin 2023-03-19 20:02:35 UTC
Actually, I can still repro in 7.4.5, but it depends on the zoom level.

Screenshot in LO 7.6

This is what it looks like in LO 7.6 (7a7eb4aa21ca0c83db825fe8d5a5278611b391d8) / Ubuntu, at 100% and 110% zoom.
Note how now at 100% there isn't enough spacing in EXCENTRICITÉ and OBLIQUITÉ between the 'T' and 'É', while at 110% there's extra spacing (the spacing was there before the change in 7.4/7.5, too, even more of it).

The change happened with the following fix to bug 103888 in 7.4/7.5, bibisected to the 7.4 backport using repo bibisect-linux-64-7.4:
