(newbie complains:) When dbl clk to hilite a word and press delete key, should delete a space. At end of sentence, should delete space before. At beginning, should delete space after. When dbl clk to hilite a word and cut, same rules. When pasting word into the middle of a word, paste no spaces. When pasting at the beginning of a sentence, paste a space after. When at the end paste a space before. When pasting between end of a word and space, paste a space before. When pasting between space and start of a word, paste a space after.

confirmed in 1.1 beta 2. I think this probably is a mistake, since it is inconsistent with the way in which words are deleted fro the keyboard, where ctrl-delete will remove the extra space.

This is not a defect, It's a non inmplemented feature.

I am a proofreader, using OpenOffice instead of Word for the first time, and i feel that the deleting/adding of the space automatically, as listed by newbie, would make a significant difference to the flow of my work and make the functionality of OpenOffice even better than it is at present!

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
