Summary0014832: Optical Margins (hanging punctuation) misses quotation marks on the left
Optical Margins (German: Optischer Randausgleich) also known as "hanging punctuation" does not work at all on leftside quotation marks.

Also, it would be nice, to have an option to choose, if a punctuation sign should be completely shifted to the side. So that the text is aligned, as if there was no quotation mark, and after the sign will just take place, next to the line (both, left and right – or again as chosen by the user).

The following may be an error on his own, but it's somehow related, because I think the "Optical Margin" function should handle this, before the line breaks:
At some point the justified text breaks and creates huge holes instead of shrinking holes that have already been quite big (See the pictures).

Yet another error:
What is the purpose of the "reset button" in the Optical Margins menu? As it does not change the look or the selected option for me.

Steps To ReproduceJust select a text-frame, fill it with Sample Text and add some quotation marks at the sides.

In the Text Properties select "Optical Margin" and set it to "Both".
TagsNo tags attached.

thanks for linking my post to the duplicate – I was checking the "font"-category not knowing there is also a dedicated "typography" category - sorry for that.

But still (which is not mentioned in the title of my post) there ist the feature request for more control over the "optical margins"-function as well as the two other errors.

And I forgot to put the attachments there, which I would like to do now ;).

Thank you for the fast reaction.

Here are the two files – the only difference is that I added a quotation mark, hoping the optical margin will handle it.

A few golden rules when using our bug tracker:
1) Before submitting any issue, search bug reports to know if the issue is not already known
2) Bugs and feature requests must be stored in different reports
3) Different bugs must be stored in different reports

"Reset button" in the Optical Margins menu does nothing currently as it's marked as TODO in the code.
