Description Hossein 2023-08-14 10:11:41 UTC
In MS Office, there is a text justification option called "Thai Distributed". The tool-tip says:

"Thai Distributed
Align paragraph to both the left and right margins by adding extra space between each two characters for languages with tone mark and vowel mark.

This creates a document with clean look."

Also, in the documentation folder of writerfilter, one may find this file:


0x2461: extra alignment:

        4: distributed
        8: justify low
        5: justify middle
        7: justify high
        9: Thai Distribute

It clarifies that there is another alignment mode, "Thai Distribute(d)". Unfortunately, I could not find any mention of this mode in LibreOffice source code and documentation.

Here are some screenshots from this feature in MS Office:
