Description orenhy 2008-09-10 06:02:37 UTC
Big problem, while writing in hebrew the text start to squish up into itself..
In general while writing the letter placement seems to big a little awkward especially after spacing.

Link to picture i took to make this clear: http://skitch.com/orenhy/i1t3/untitled-1-openoffice.org-writer

This make OO3 unusable in the hebrew language at the current state.

Thnaks for taking notice

Reassigned to SBA.

SBA->HDU: As seen: While writing Hebrew text, the "recently written characters"
move around a little and do not get correctly repainted all the times. When text
breaks to the next line, the above lines leave some hard-to-read repaint errors.
Best to be seen with normal font sizes (10..14).
Confirming issue.

The workarounds to get text repainted are not exactly convenient: 
(1) Make the paragraph left-aligned. Like this, all characters in the line
currently being edited get moved rightwards and get repainted. But this does
flicker of course.
(2) Get the text area in question repainted. I found that the "force repaint"
Keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+R on other OS) does not work on Mac OS. I will
write a seperate issue for that. To get the area "repainted manually":
(2a) Scroll the text out of the window and back
(2b) resize the window
(2c) change the Zoom factor (i.e. with the Zoom slider or its +/- knobs)

I will leave Prio P2 as this is a massive hinderance for Hebrew use on Mac.

On the other hand, there is an OOo 3.0 RC1 already out now and the developer
ressources to get this solved are simply not available. OOo 3.0 is the first
official release to work on Mac OS X and we can not solve all problems at the
first attempt :-( 

Thus I set target OOo 3.x
