Files change type position/spacing when opening file saved in older versions of illustrator
Files opened in 23.1.1 saved in recent previous versions of illustrator change spacing, position and kerning.
I am working in 23.1.1 and the files in question were saved in a recent previous version. What happens is only certain fonts (all open type format in document) jump position by as much as 1 point. this has been confirmed on multiple machines running new version (23.1.1)
It appears that kerning/spacing/tracking gets altered. The attached file shows the comparison between new version and old version. green highlights show amount of distance of shifting.

In my case this is only happening to text that has tracking applied.
Illustrator is applying tracking to the last character, set the tracking to zero on the last character and this should fix it. Screenshots attached.

The issue stopped when i reverted back to version 23.0.4.
