Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

You can change the text box alignment via its "Justification" property, however you can't currently change the text direction. That said, work on supporting right-to-left text rendering is currently on-going, but I can't say when it might make it out in a release.

Just curious if there has been any advancement on this?

We've had bidirectional text support since 4.13 (with some bugs fixed for 4.14). If a line of LTR text stared with an RTL override, then you'd get RTL order.

The "Justification" property is only available for a "Text" Widget, not for a "TextBox" Widget... How can i get a right alignment for those Widgets?

Which version? I see that option in Main, but it may be relatively new.

For a single-line editable text, justification is the same aligning the box within its parent container.

It's Version 4.17.2 ... I checked quickly 4.19 and there is also Justification missing for the TextBox...

I don't see a "Main" section in the Details of the TextBox Widget...

My Textbox is in a SizeBox. When the Horizontal Alignment of the TextBox is set to "Right", then the Text Alignment is like I want it, but the TextBox itself resizes to the Text I enter in it... But I need a fixed Size of the TextBox, therefore that SizeBox... So I have to set the Horizontal Alignment of the TextBox to "Fill"...

I see a Justification option for Text Box in 4.19.

We are currently updating the project to 4.19 and you are right... There is the Justification Option in the Appearance section... Thx for your help!
