[Solved] Asian Phonetic Guide greyed-out

Postby scocasso » Fri Dec 06, 2019 3:19 am

Asian Phonetic Guide is greyed-out. It doesn't seem to want to allow me to use it.
How can I get this to work for me?? I tried all kinds of things, nothing seems to work.
Also, I tried to see if I could add Asian Phonetic Guide as a button to a toolbar, I couldn't get that to happen either.

--------------------
Edit:
If anyone wants to add it to their toolbar, here is a 16x16 png icon I made for it.
It says 振り with ふ on top of the first character. Short for 振り仮名(ふりがな)"furigana"

Enable the option. Options are set with OpenOffice → Preferences on a Mac, Tools → Options on other platforms.

Thanks! That did the trick. Jeeze, what a pain.

I also figured out how add it as a button to the toolbar, another pain, but it worked too.
