Description of problem:
Look at the example file. For example, "Interest Income" as the letters "er" and
"om" touching. Other distances are suspect as well.

Thanks for reporting this. I'll try to get the font kerning fixed as part of my
upstream work in this area. Please see  for further updates.
I'll leave this bug open for now to help me track this particular problem.
Matthew, any chance of having a bug fix in the near future?
Looks like it fell through the cracks. I'll try to address this soon.
*** Bug 447238 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
If this is an upstream bug, how did they manage to fix it in Ubuntu and keep it
fixed for at least 2 versions now?
Ask Ubuntu. And tell them to share.
I'll do what you ask me to do if I can, but I can't see if you are joking or
not. I just know that I can't print anything out from my emails without it
looking like my computer has preschool quality handwriting.
I know it's been working for quite a while in Ubuntu so I'm wondering why it
isn't working in Fedora.
I finally have a patch for this in the upstream bug referenced above, so I'm
closing this as UPSTREAM. Please continue to monitor  for further updates.
