Title: text property language
Post by: jim78b on July 23, 2019, 03:34:29 pm
Excuse me but i try to search something about...but nothing clear my doubts.

there is an option with the language.
is this setting dependent on the paragraph style? if yes, can't every paragraph style have 2 languages? or i every time select the text and apply ex:italian and english?

the language is mainly used for the hyphenation and for the text direction (iirc).

you cannot define two different languages in a paragraph style but:

- you can of course have different languages in one paragraph,
- by using the direct formatting or
- through character styles.

preferences are for future documents...
... document settings are for the current document...

does this solve your issue?

(and, wrote before, please open a thread for each question... line thickness has nothing to do with the text language...)
