Description madmalkav 2016-12-08 17:11:11 UTC
When you open the APG with a text selected, I think it will be more logical to automatically set the cursor to the first Ruby Text field instead of Base Text, that is already filled with your selected text.

Also, it will be better if the Align option defaulted to last used value instead to "left", or to be able to configure what is the default value by the user.

This changes can make the use of APG much faster and confortable i.e. when inputting lot of furigana in japanese texts.

As a Japanese user, I thought the enhancement request (reported by madmalkav and illustrated by Mark Hung) is quite reasonable.

Definitely want to see this. I'd also like to add making the alignment/style settings apply to all furigana listed in the editing box (instead of just the current line). Trying to set all furigana in a document to, say, 1 2 1 alignment is a giant PITA going at it 1 entry at a time.
