Some fonts have this thing that they glue certain characters together (I think it’s called ligature). It might look beautiful in some cases, but the problem is when you change characters spacing. Look what happens with the font Lato size 43 pt when spacing is set to 6 pt:
It looks horrible and makes me ill.
Is there anything I can do about it?
I’m using LibreOffice Writer 5.4.3 on Ubuntu 16.04.
I was able to get the spacing I wished by inserting a tiny space between the linked characters (image below), but that’s actually a really ugly solution.
