Description Munzir Taha 2018-04-12 14:43:08 UTC
Description:
The current situation of justification in LibreOffice is very bad indeed for Arabic. No book can be typeset professionally with LibreOffice. I already filed bug #106653.

Here, I am requesting to make available other kinds of justification which is easier to implement. The alternative methods could be added inn Tools -> Options e.g

Do full justification with:
[x] Alternative Shapes
[x] Inter-Word Spaces
[x] Ligatures
[x] Kashida

Steps to Reproduce:
Justify Arabic text

Actual Results:  
There are inter-character gaps and letters are overriding each other

Expected Results:
No gaps between characters


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No
