#1095 new enhancement

Option to switch the subs edit box to a standard text edit

Reported by: nielsm Owned by:

Version: devel Keywords:
Cc: bidi Platform: All
Sub Component:


While the current Scintilla-based edit box used for subtitles is very fancy, it has some serious problems with scripts that aren't plain LTR text and it doesn't seem like Scintilla will ever get proper support for bidirectional text.

Ticket #828 has an unstarted project to develop our own edit box control that has syntax highlighting and bidi-support, as we require, but in the meantime we should have a workaround to get some kind of bidi support.

The idea is to have a preference option to use a system standard edit control instead of our wxSTC-derived one. Users who don't need bidi can get a fancy control with syntax highlighting, users who do need bidi can choose to get a control without syntax highlighting but with bidi support.
