Description 2007-07-16 13:08:14 UTC
For advanced typography it does not matter what the script type is. When the typographic layout engine 
does some fancy processing for the active font this must be taken into account. Currently this more 
complex and time consuming processing is only enabled for CTL-scripts. It should be enabled depending 
on the font and the font features that are activated.
Comment 1 2007-07-16 13:16:04 UTC
The info about the typographic complexity of a font should be requested from the subsystem 
responsible for typographic layout, e.g. by calling the OutputDevice::GetFontMetric() method.

Until this gets implemented here is a temporay workaround to enable CTL-processing for all interactive 
text input into Writer:

Reset assigne to the default "".
