Additional css support (justify, first line, indent)

Fri Mar 25, 2011 10:49 pm

Are there any plans to add Justify (text-align:justify), first line selecting (E:first-line) or text indenting (text-indent) from the CSS 2.1 specs?

We are evaluating Oxygen, and so far these are the features we've identified that we need that aren't present. Any information I could take back to the team would be helpful.
Thanks.

Hi,

We do not yet support these CSS properties, maybe this will be improved in a future Oxygen version but we have no such plans on the short-term.

In the meantime if you want to indent the first line of a paragraph para for example you can use this workaround:

Code: Select all

para:before{
 display:inline;
 content: "               ";
}

What I'm really trying to do is a hanging indent.
Any thoughts on how to do that in the current version of Oxygen?

Hi Chris,

I understand the use-case but unfortunately I can give you no work around.
Oxygen is just an XML editor so the visual aspect of the edited content is not preserved when the document is published. But I understand that you want to edit the XML document looking as close as possible like the published content.

Has there been any movement on this issue in the intervening years? I have a client who is very upset at the apparent lack of support for hanging indent in the editor. Should I tell him that support is forthcoming? Or that it will not happen in the foreseeable future? Thanks.

Hi Paul,

We do not yet have handing indent implemented in Oxygen. I increased the priority of the issue, possibly if all goes well we'll try to approach this feature in Oxygen 17.1 (Autumn 2015).
