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.

set target milestone to OOo 3.0.
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.
