Description Emir Sarı 2014-02-02 18:07:37 UTC

When text is justified in LibreOffice, Writer tries to adjust character spacing between glyphs, but mostly fails. See attachment 1.

Result is mostly text looking differently from rest of the text with obvious spacing errors. For reference, NeoOffice does not have this problem, see attachment 2 for screenshot. 

This behaviour also causes cursor placement errors, it is visually not possible to see on which character cursor is on with these types of lines.

Please test on different platforms before closing text layout-related bugs, we have completely different text layout code on Windows, Linux and Mac.

We need a test file here, the font and the text can make a big difference.
