Summary0003879: Distribute ragged lines
DescriptionWould be nice to have a system that distributes ragged lines, so you don't get one-word lines.

I don't really know how other software deal with this, but I'm pretty sure InDesign has something like this, so that might provide some inspiration if you know them.
TagsNo tags attached.

In some DTP apps you can specify a "ragged zone" so text won't be ragged too much. This works in accordance with hyphenation settings. It has to be one or the other. If you turn off hyphenation, then obviously you're not giving much of a choice to the program!

Is this what you mean?

The option could be part of paragraph style. When you turn on hyphenation, the "Ragged zone" option appears. Otherwise it is grayed.

NLS will fill each line optimally, even if ragged or centered. To be precise, it finds a solution such that the sum over all lines in a paragraph of the whitespace squared is minimal. That means that a 30pt white space at the end of a line will be considered 9 times as bad as a 10pt white space.

NLS = new layout system, due in 1.3.5.
