Apologies if it seems as though this thread can't die a natural death.


Which version of LibreOffice was used in this test? I cannot enter Japanese text in LibreOffice and cannot find the setup references you mention in the configuration pages for 4.0.22 (running on Kubuntu 13.04). Can you recall what else you may have done to convince LibreOffice that accepting Japanese was a Really Good Idea (tm)?

I am in the midst of preparing a final report for a legal client who has requested that I annotate all of the Japanese specialist terms I use with their kana / kanji. My Japanese language field and interview notes were prepared on an Android device and ported to Kubuntu, which leaves me with the necessity of cutting and pasting Japanese annotations from an intermediate program into the LibreOffice report and then changing typefaces and font characteristics one-by-one. I'd prefer to be able to just type them directly in and have them meet the default Asian language setup on the fly.

As a side note, I have LibreOffice running in my WIN 7 VirtualBox and don't have the language input issue ... just the problem of having my notes and report on different desktops and running on top of different OSes, which is a place I don't want to go, right now.
