Tibetan script doesn't have breaks between words, only syllables and sentences. I want text to wrap over a line without using hyphenation.

Ideally, I'd like the option of choosing which characters qualify for a break. In the case of Tibetan, it would be a syllable break (it looks like a raised full stop and in most IMEs you get it by pressing space)

@RootSpring - I don't know Tibetian at all. However, what you wrote gives me the impression that, concerning line breaks, there are similarties to Japanese. Thus, you might be able to look for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean scripts and line breaks.

If you don't find the solution maybe you can attach a pdf and odt file. I will then have a look at it.

Otherwise follow @qubit's advice

Hi @RootSpring,

I don't see any note about support for Tibetan script on these pages:

But I do find a reference here:

Search for 'Tibetan' on that page -- the contact's name is 'Tashi Wangdue'. I'd try contacting him and coordinating with him on this improvement.

Essentially, I'd suggest that you file an enhancement bug and provide as much information about this new feature as possible. Don't forget to mark your bug as an 'enhancement'. The QA team will be happy to help you triage your feature request in the bugtracker.

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".
