Description y3kcjd5 2017-04-15 23:40:55 UTC
Description:
Currently the only way to insert furigana in LO is to use the rather clunky UI in the formatting menu and go through entry by entry. At high text volumes, that just doesn't cut it. As someone who works with Japanese quite a bit, I'd really like to see some way to get this done faster. Some options that would speed things up:

a. A button (like the super/subscript button) or hotkey to quickly switch between regular text and furigana. Currently it's impossible to switch between the two without reaching for the mouse.

b. The ability to search for and replace with furigana (see numerous tickets for search related improvements)

c. Compatibility with other common document formats supporting furigana, e.g. HTML5 (the <ruby> tag)

About A, you actually can assign a shortcut to asian phonetic guide, and in one of my reports I proposed some changes to make the AFG more useable, but this sounds as a good idea in combination with what is already  proposed, that is, a way for the user to change AFG defaults.

 About B, it would be an awesome improvement, with other fundamental thins currently LO lacks like furigana dupport in Calc.

About C, I don't have any idea about document formats, sorry.

y3kcjd5: could you create separate reports for b. and c. and we can keep this for a.?

Done. See the "See Also" section. This topic will be for:

-A button (like the super/subscript button) or hotkey to quickly switch between regular text and furigana. Currently it's impossible to switch between the two without reaching for the mouse.
