Description billp 2010-02-28 15:18:44 UTC
If two words in an ODT file are separated by a tab, Windows Search won't find
the ODT file when searching for the word following the tab. If the file is saved
in DOC format, Windows Search will find the DOC file.

The problem is still present in OOo 3.2.1. I worked around it in OOo 3.2.0 by
installing the StarOffice / OpenOffice IFilter from IFilterShop. With that
IFilter installed, Windows Search was fine. Updating to OOo 3.2.1 replaced the
IFilter from IFilterShop with the IFilter from OOo and the problem returned.

Has this been tested on 64-bit Windows? I am now using 64-bit Windows 8.1 instead of Vista and can still reproduce this bug using AOO 4.0.1 and AOO410m1(Build:9750)  -  Rev. 1556251. This problem has become even worse when using AOO410m1(Build:9750)  -  Rev. 1560760. File Explorer now doesn't list the test file when searching using any word in the test file. It's no longer limited to searching using words following tabs. Can this bug be reopened to cover that issue or should I submit a new bug?

Yes - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Testcase with another missing whitespace

I can reproduce the bug under W7 Pro X64 and OpenOffice 4.1.0 German.

There is also a case with a date field and a piece of text two paragraphs later: The year of the date field and the following text are concatenated.
