It would be great if LibreOffice could support optical margin alignment.
Steps to Reproduce:
Make punctuation into the margins.

In German "Optischer Randausgleich", sometimes to be find by term "character protrusion". The feature is available in InDesign, Scribus and PdfTeX.
It is a valid request.
This feature would be especially nice because it is so far only available to a limited as a Graphite smartfont feature for Linux Libertine - but not for any other fonts. In Scribus, InDesign etc. optical margin alignment appears to be implemented in the software. So it is unlikely that other fonts will ever have such a feature implemented only for LibreOffice.
"hanging punctuation" is another term that describes more or less the same feature. Searching for this in LiberOffice Help indicates that the feature seems to be already available for Asian typography (but apparently limited to periods and commas). This makes me hope that the feature could relatively easily be implemented for Latin script and punctuation signs like hyphens. Bud I must admit I have now knowledge in software development whatsoever.

Should this new setting be part of 'Paragraph > Alignment' dialog in the area of the 'Justified' options?
