It only happens if there's a mismatch between the font metrics used when
doing layout, and the font metrics used when displaying the glyphs. To
narrow it down a bit: does Ink make sure not to use screen fonts when
printing? Using screen fonts when printing pretty much guarantees that
there'll be mismatches.

It wouldn't hurt to increase it, but it wouldn't fix the problem. It
would probably make it slightly less apparent in the common case, but
right-aligned text, and many other things, would still have gaps and

Setting it to 1 would help a lot more, in a sense, by forcing the layout
manager to explicitly set the position of each glyph. However, that'd be
amazingly inefficient.
