Description eric.savary 2010-01-19 15:53:00 UTC
- New Writer doc
- Verify that "Tools - AutoCorrect - Options - Use replacement table" [M] is checked
- Verify the "English (USA)" is chosen for the replacement table
- in the text type "abotu"
- press Space
-> text gets replaced with "about" (this is ia the "while you type" [T] function)
- Now Undo to get "abotu" again
- do "Format - AutoCorrect - Apply"
-> nothing happens

Sum up: the [M] function of "Use replacement table" doesn't work.

@Cédric: this issue blocks issue 107088, issue 107083 and issue 107084.
Why? we wanted to remove the "Replace 1/2" option and put it in the replacement
Currently "Replace 1/2" works with [M]and [T].
If we remove the option from the Option Tab, it will loose it's functionality
for [M] (because of the current issue).

Can you have a look at the current issue and see if you can fix it in the CWS?
Else reassign to OS for 3.x and revert your changes concerning the deletion of
the"Replace 1/2" option.

@OS: we found out that this bug only affects "some" entries of the replacement
Our concern was the replacement of "1/2..." but we managed to make it work in
CWS cbosdo01.
So reassigning to you and removing dependences/CCs.

I couldn't find out for we entries and why it does not work.
A quick test shown following results:

Following strings are written in the document:


Résult ("Bug" = "not corrected" ; "Ok" = "corrected"):
1/2  -> Bug
-- -> Bug
--> -> Bug
-> -> Bug
(c) -> ok
(r) -> ok
(tm) -> ok
Abotu-> Bug
