[Scribus] Choosing the text language
Tue Aug 29 16:08:06 CEST 2006
Pehaps this is easy, but I am a bit confused when it comes to defing the
language of my text.
I have chosen my language for the hyphenator in the Document preferences.
I also see that is is possible to choose a language for my text in the
properties box (in the tab ?Text?), but not in the style composer and
not in the Scrapbook.
When I import my new text, it shows nothing in the properties box.
Does this mean that it is not possible to choose the standard language
for new text, and I have to explicitly change this after the import, or
is this a bug?
Further I also see, that I have to choose the language for each text
frame, and have not found a way to do this for the whole text at once,
but perhaps I am overlooking something?
And ought not it be possible to choose the language per style, that
means I can define a style and say that this is english, another style
of the same sort, but now german. With this implemented multilanguage
support would be even better, or am I missing out something here?
The point of all this would then be to have my text hyphenated the right
way :-) Both the composer and the scrapbook could then profitate from
having this capability too.
I see a rework is scheduled for the hyphenation part, perhaps the above
mentioned issues are in it?
I found these related bugs:
BTW: I can confirm that the hyphenation doesnt learn, but asks the same
word over and over. And it asks not only for the words on the end of the
line, but *all* words in the Text, with long texts this makes a lot of
work. I also second 1108, it should be possible to keep a textfile where
my new words are stored (Page maker does this, and uses ~to mark the
hyphenations points, it even uses susequent ~s to say wich are most
important. Something to implement?), I have such a file from Pagemaker,
and it would save me work to use it.
If wished I can add some of this to the relevant bugreports.
... I also second http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1137 by the way,
although I found another way through this :-)
