Left-Align for Bible Text?

Hi,

I am trying to use the KhmerNT module with Eloquent, and got everything to work fine, but it seems like Eloquent tries to justify the Bible text, which for the Khmer language does not work. Is there a way to force the text to be left-align so the text will display correctly? If not, is there some way this feature could be added?

Thank you,
Nathan

Hi.

What do you mean by justify?. Eloquent basically just reads the SWORD module data and displays it as is with applying the configured font.
Can you give an example of how it should look like?


Regards,
Manfred

Sure.

This screenshot is using the same module but on a PC with xulsword (the line-height is a little too low, but that is another issue).

Re: Left-Align for Bible Text?

Which bible reference is this screenshot from? So I can compare to what Eloquent displays.
Since I can't read this language I still don't know what's the difference or in which way the output of Eloquent is wrong.

Re: Left-Align for Bible Text?

I don't have access to a Mac (one of my staff has one, and that is what we were testing on).

But you should be able to view almost any passage, scroll a bit, and then you should see some lines where the words are stretched with large spaces between characters - that is where it is wrong. Everything should be close together like in the screenshot.

Thanks,
Nathan

OK. I'll see what I can do.
Does this stretching give a different meaning? Or to what can this display error be compared in our language?

Re: Left-Align for Bible Text?

Sorry, I thought I would get an email when someone replied!

The stretching just makes it really hard, if not impossible to read.
In English it would be like: "H e
l l o"
rather than "Hello"

Thanks for your help with this!

Hello Nathan.

Could you please try version 2.4.5 which was just released.
It includes a fix for Khmer and other modules which use the zero-width space character.


Regards,
Manfred
