Sample Formula to Illustrate Problem
The spacing between a variable and its' subscript is incorrect. This shortcoming makes usage of the formula editor (eg Math in Writer) untenable for a publication quality document such as a thesis or paper. See the attached file.
Thanks for the report, but it seems to be a duplicate. Closing as such.
