Description rblackeagle 2003-03-03 22:17:44 UTC
(Last of three issues suggested by using XyWrite)
The normal way of adjusting a line for full justification of text is to fill the line with complete spaces between the words.  This often results in a strange-looking line.  The solution used by XyWrite was to borrow a technique from newspaper column justification -- micro-spacing both spacss and kerning (between letters).  The result, even for lines which reuquired a lot of spacing, did not appear to have been justified -- it looked like it just "happened" to fill the line perfectly.

Microjustification makes for much nicer looking justified text.  Will
this be set for at least a "look at" in the near future (say after 1.1
is out)?

SBA: Adjusted title to meet the description. This is platform and OS
independant -> changed to "All".

SBA: Reassigned to Bettina from the User Experience team for consideration.

I'm almost hungry for this one.  However, since microjustification 
takes more computing power and time, I would recommend that it be an 
option with a warning "may significantly slow processing time for 
viewing an printing."

Any thoughts on this one, yet?
