To reproduce in LibreOffice 4.2,
1. Open LibreOffice
2. Go to Tools > Options,
3. Open the page Language Settings/Languages.
4. If under Default Languages for Documents, the option Asian is disabled,
enable it. If it is already enabled, continue with step 7.
5. Close the options by clicking OK.
6. Go to Tools > Options again.
7. Open the page Language Settings/Asian Layout.
8. Look for the two options under Kerning:
+ the first one uses the phrase "Western characters"
+ the second one uses "Western text"
> This is inconsistent.
The help entry reads:
Defines the default settings for kerning between individual characters.
Western characters only
Specifies that kerning is only applied to western text.
Western text and Asian punctuation
Specifies that kerning is applied to both western text and Asian
I.e. there does not seem to be a difference in meaning => both options should use the words "Western text".
Not sure why this report has been unconfirmed for so long. IMO options should read:
- Western text only
- Western text and Asian punctuation
Confirmed. Status set to NEW.
Is it a clipping issue?

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.1 or preferably 18.104.22.168 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
