Description Unknown 2003-03-12 21:27:26 UTC
(newbie complains:) When dbl clk to hilite a word and press delete key, should 
delete a space.  At end of sentence, should delete space before.  At beginning, 
should delete space after.  
When dbl clk to hilite a word and cut, same rules.  When pasting word into the 
middle of a word, paste no spaces.  When pasting at the beginning of a 
sentence, paste a space after.  When at the end paste a space before.  When 
pasting between end of a word and space, paste a space before.  When pasting 
between space and start of a word, paste a space after.

confirmed in 1.1 beta 2. I think this probably is a mistake, since it 
is inconsistent with the way in which words are deleted fro the 
keyboard, where ctrl-delete will remove the extra space.

This is not a defect, It's a non inmplemented feature.

I am a proofreader, using OpenOffice instead of Word for the first time, and i
feel that the deleting/adding of the space automatically, as listed by newbie,
would make a significant difference to the flow of my work and make the
functionality of OpenOffice even better than it is at present!

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
