Description andoras 2020-08-05 15:54:12 UTC
There is no "Allow hanging punctuation" option in general, only in Asian Typography.
It would be great if we could use this feature at any language.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Format->Paragraph -> "Indents & Spacing" tab
2. "Asian typography" tab

Actual Results:
There was no "Allow hanging punctuation" option at step 1., only at step 2.

Expected Results:
The software should do the same because this isn't a bug really, it is a missing feature

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I really miss this feature. It would be great to have that in general.

Thanks for reporting.  I believe your suggestion is covered in the "optical margin alignment" feature suggested in bug 106513, and has marked this as DUPLICATE.

If you disagree, feel free to change the status of this bug back to UNCONFIRMED and add a brief explanation.

BTW, from what I understand, the "Allow hanging punctuation" feature for Asian typography in LO is rather different from the issues your Latin-based script users care about.  It is as simple as "don't put commas and periods at the beginning of a line".  And while trivial in languages such as English, it is a rather complicated task for Chinese and Japanese that don't use spaces in their text, and therefore has no natural line-break candidate positions.
