An example document

Attached document contains a paragraph with two centered tabs, line breaks and justified alignment.

In the lines with line breaks at the end, the second tab stop does not seem to work as expected: the text falling under it is justified, not centered.

In case of the first tab stop the text is centered. If I add one more tab stop, the text under the second gets centered correctly.

In the last line which ends with a paragraph break the text under the second tab stop is centered as well.

This happens with left and right aligned kinds of tab stops as well.

In Word 2013 this feature works like this: the text under both tab stops is centered, no matter the line break and the justified setting.

Comment 8 Gabor Kelemen 2019-07-23 09:37:20 UTC
So I just found that setting the Options - Writer - Compatibility - "Expand word space on lines with manual line breaks in justified paragraphs" option to false solves this issue.
I guess we can set this in our default config.
