Antwerpen - Borgerhout, 9 november 2012

Dear Sirs,

I use Apache Open Office writer for Russian text. In order to put stress marks on the stressed vowel I insert hex301 after the vowel, as prescribed be the Unicode conventions. But the effect of this is a kind of doubling of the vowel with the mark over it. In MS Office Word however this procedure works correctly.

                                Thank you for your attention,
                                Harry Litzroth

This problem reproduce only on Windows7.
Linux and WinXP is not affected.
I can confirm this problem on Win7 and AOOo 3.4.0 also.

Windows XP definitely is affected.
The key to reproduce this behavior is inserting accents from an external source.
Comment 3 urmasd 2012-11-26 02:37:08 UTC
In my case, the problem was caused by the following style applied to the acute:

<style:style style:name="T3" style:family="text"><style:text-properties fo:language="en" fo:country="US"/></style:style>

Hello Harry,

I reproduced your problem using Win7 64, and I had the same result.
