Description jjc 2005-09-25 14:41:15 UTC
In Thai, the end of a sentence is not usually marked by punctuation; instead sentences are separated by spaces. In Writer, triple-clicking is supposed to select a sentence, but triple clicking in a Thai paragraph containing multiple space-separated sentences selects the whole paragraph. In Thai a space is used not just to separate sentences but also to separate phrases (in other words it is used both like a comma and a period in English); telling the difference is hard and in any case the concept of a sentence is not as sharp in English. The natural thing to do would be for a triple-click to consider any space-delimited phrase to be a sentence.

Agree with James that triple-click at a Thai character should simply select the space-delimited string (which typically is a phrase in Thai) containing the character.

Make space as sentence separator for Thai. Fixed in cws i18n41.

Comment 8 stefan.baltzer 2008-05-19 11:24:26 UTC
Verified in CWS i18n41. In Thai text... - Double-click selects a character - Triple-Click now selects Thai string/sentence "from Space to Space" - Quadruple-Click selects entire paragraph.
