Line breaking rules in East Asian (CJK) text

Recommended Posts

The line breaking rules in East Asian languages specify how to wrap East Asian Language text such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Certain characters in those languages should not come at the end of a line, certain characters should not come at the start of a line, and some characters should never be split up across two lines. For example, periods and closing parenthesesare not allowed to start a line. Many word processing and desktop publishing software products have built-in features to control line breaking rules in those languages.

I'm afraid Publisher is not yet ready for CJK text. There are a few other threads about it too, such as this one:

 

Yes, it's a pity since the issue is there for a few years already.

BTW, I created a new thread on the new forum since Serif is archiving the old one...
