Description jjc 2005-10-02 08:40:25 UTC
When a paragraph in a file created by Thai Word 97 has "Thai distribute"
justification, OOo will treat it as justified paragraph with the last line also
justified.  This is not the correct semantics for "Thai distribute"
justification: "Thai distribute" justification means justifying by putting extra
space between cells rather than expanding the size of existing white spaces. OOo
automatically does "Thai distribute" justification when justifying Thai.  So the
correct behavior is to map "Thai distribute" justification onto normal

Comment 2 jjc 2005-10-02 08:54:36 UTC
This is related to issue 47801, but it's not the same since Word97 uses the 2403
SPRM and Word 2003 uses the 2461 SPRM.

This looks like a misunderstanding of the semantics of the 2403 SPRM.  The
problem was introduced in version of ww8par6.cxx.

FT: This issue first needs implementation on Thai justification in OO.o. 
FT->OS: Since I leave please take care of this issue, thx.

OOo already implements Thai justification, so this can be fixed without
implementing anything else first.

Just to be clear:

- In Word, normal justification for Thai text does Western style justification
(stretching existing spaces); there's an additional kind of justification "Thai
distribute" that does Thai style justification (adding spaces between clusters).

- In OOo, normal justification for Thai text automatically does Thai style
justification; there's no way to do Western style justification for Thai text

So on import from Word, "Thai distribute" justification needs to map onto normal
justification, and on export to Word, normal justification applied to Thai text
needs to map onto "Thai distribute" justification.
