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 [1] 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?
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-01-29 14:23:02 EST
Looks like it fell through the cracks.  I'll try to address this soon.

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?
Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2008-05-19 15:19:48 EDT
Ask Ubuntu.  And tell them to share.
Comment 9 Johnny Proton 2008-05-19 17:19:41 EDT
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.
Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2008-06-26 23:21:37 EDT
I finally have a patch for this in the upstream bug referenced above, so I'm
closing this as UPSTREAM.  Please continue to monitor [1] for further updates.
