Using line-breaking rules for Asian text

Posted On 10:15 PM by Komputer Grafis |

CorelDRAW includes line-breaking rules for use with Asian text when you have an Asian operating system. For most Asian languages, a line of text can break between any two characters, with a few exceptions. Some characters cannot appear at the end of a line. These characters are referred to as “leading characters.” Other characters — referred to as “following characters” — cannot appear at the beginning of a line.

The line breaks either after the following character or before the character that precedes the following character. Still others — referred to as “overflow characters” — are not wrapped but are, instead, allowed to extend beyond the right or bottom margin.

To enforce one or more of the line-breaking rules, you can enable any of the rules. To customize the rules, you can add or remove characters. You can also reset the rules to the default.

To disable or enable line-breaking rules

1. Click Text Line-breaking rules.

2. In the Asian line-breaking rules dialog box, enable any of the following check boxes:

• Leading characters — ensures that a line does not break after any of the characters in the list

• Following characters — ensures that a line does not break before any of the characters in the list

• Overflow characters — ensures that the characters in the list are allowed to extend beyond the margin of the line

• You must have Asian text support installed on your operating system and have paragraph text selected to view the Asian line-breaking rules dialog box.
