Description tjeanneret 2009-03-10 13:21:14 UTC
Hello There,

I am using a Swiss French or a French keyboard on my iMac. I am designing a
simple form in Writer. When I chose the "Multiline with formating" type of
field, I am unable to enter any accented character (like éàè etc). The "Dead
keys" don't work, so I cannot get to the ¨ ^ etc characters. When a "normal"
character is on the Upcased-key or one such key, like !?, it does not appear too.
This problem seems occuring only under OSX. Laurent Godard checked it on its
Linux platform and it didn't appear. I checked it under Windows (Parallels) on
the same Mac, it didn't appear. The behaviour is the same with NeoOffice.

Configuration : 3.0.1
OOO300m15 Build 9379

iMac 24" 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB Ram.
Mac OSX V 10.5.6 All updates done

Thank you all anyway,

I can confirm this Bug with MAC OS X 10.5.7 (Intel), 3.1.0.
After I write äöü in the Textfield and change in an other Application and back
-> only a 0 is standing there (instead äöü).
