Description herrickinman 2013-01-03 10:22:32 UTC
In Find & Replace, enter ".+" in Search For, check Regular Expressions, select  Format: Italic, and press Find. This operation should select the next string of italics. That is the way it worked in v.3.3.

But in v. 3.4.1, it selects all text from the first italic to the end of the paragraph.

It should be added that the same also applies to other formats like bold or underline, and searching for attributes like "character posture/weight" also marks up to paragraph end.

Test system: AOO350m1(Build:9611) - Rev. 1420743 / 2012-12-13_04:34:45 - Rev. 1421074, Linux 64 bit on Ubuntu 12.04.

Comment 3 miele angelo 2013-01-16 19:44:52 UTC
The same problem on Linux Debian 64 bit in a virtualbox
Comment 4 miele angelo 2013-01-16 19:50:22 UTC
Sorry, I forgot to select confirmed. The bug is present on windows 7 64bit and on linux debian 64bit. The same problem if a space is formattated as italic.
