I notice that the current version of OmegaT (3.1.5) contains a feature in the TXT filter that limits line length in the target file.
It's there since 3.1.0.
However, I've tried it and it it doesn't affect the line length in the target file at all. What are the usage instructions for this feature?
As always, a link to the description of the feature is in changes.txt (Help > Last changes).
3.1.0 vs. 3.0.8 update 5
Limit line length of target text files
Basically, "Line length" tells where the line could started to be cut, and "Max line length" gives the hard limit.
I tried "10" and "50" as values. My source text is:
The rain in Spain. The Rain in Spain.The rain in Spain. The Rain in Spain.
My target text is:
asdfThe rain in Spain. asdfThe Rain in Spain.The rain in Spain. asdfThe Rain in Spain.
I expected this (for 50):
asdfThe rain in Spain. asdfThe Rain in Spain.The
rain in Spain. asdfThe Rain in Spain.
It could have been
in Spain asdfThe
etc. (otherwise, use 50 and 50).
You have found a bug, which seems to be triggered by the fact that your test is only a single line. I will report the bug.
If you test with a more usual text file (containing several lines), you should see that the target file is closer to what you expect.
