in RTL/BIDI messages the dot indicating spaces are displayed on the wrong side. The start position should start in the right, not left.

Sorry, I will try to fix this for KDE 4.0.
Comment 3 Diego Iastrubni 2005-05-30 17:25:41 UTC
you know, I was thinking of it... the way you do the
syntax highlighting in kbabel is quite "stupid"
(sorry). Is there a reason why you did not implement a
QSyntaxHilighter? Qt2.x legacy code?

About the dots... Are you familiar with The
QStyleSheet? Maybe this can help us with this problem.

BTW. I know that Qt4 does not have a QSyntaxHilighter,
but silll... :)

Comment 4 Stanislav Visnovsky 2005-05-30 17:39:35 UTC
Of course kbabel uses QSyntaxHighlighter ;)

Are you sure QStyleSheet could solve the problem?
But you are right, I have no idea how much is possible to achieve with
the style sheet.

Let's postpone this for KDE 4.
Comment 6 Diego Iastrubni 2008-10-11 01:56:54 UTC
kbabel was dropped in kde4, kde3 will not be maintained anymore (and IMHO it's not possible to fix this in Qt3, only Qt4 adds the needed support in QTextCursor).

Sorry, closing as no one will fix kbabel. Lokalize can get fixed, and has a similar feature already.
