1. Type something in Tamil.  Eg. திட்டமிடல்  என்றால்  என்ன?
2. Select the text and make it Bold.  

Expected: Space between the words should be maintained
Actual: Space between the words are removed.

Not reproduced.
I could only see the glyphs on Linux, so I can't be sure about Windows.

Example document

I can reproduce this in Windows 7, LO
Copied the example text in a document using different font sizes, both normal and bold. If font size is small, the spacing can completely disappear in some cases.

LO master build (039b75d6cdc26dcce03e37c67115405e6f2a8ebe) gives assertion failed: -1 != nCharPos, line 2361, vcl/win/gdi/winlayout.cxx

Spacing looks fine in Linux, LO

This appears to be a regression, not reproducible in, but appears in
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-13 11:27:37 UTC
Adding keyword 'preBisect' as this regression was introduced before branch 4.4 and therefore it can't be bibisected as there's no bibisect repository for this branch.

Dear muthu,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
