Description ccheney 2009-03-21 22:14:11 UTC
From the Ubuntu bug report:
"
I've uploaded a blank version of our customer database so you can see what I mean.

Steps to reproduce the error:

 Open the database customer_database.odb
 click on Forms (Formulieren)
 open the form by clicking e-mail_list_new_entry
 click on the EmailAddress field under ENTER CUSTOMER DATA
 type test@gmail.com
 highlight @gmail.com
 hit CTRL+F3 or go to Edit AutoText

Here you can then see what I was showing in the previous screenshot.

It is impossible to create an autotext or use an autotext. Which is silly since
AutoText is the most useful when you are doing large batches of data entry.

It's not possible to use AutoText inside Form Controls. However I send it to the
requirements team for evaluating.
