Description Rob Weir 2014-01-21 13:53:16 UTC
In AOO 4.0.1, any platform.

1) Launch Writer

2) Enter the string "naive"

3) Autocorrect will change this to "naïve"

4) But "naïve" is not in the spell checking dictionary, so it is marked as an error.

We should add "naïve" to the dictionary or remove the rule that replaces "naive" with "naïve".

Auto correction from "naive" to "naïve" is there in DocumentList.xml packed 
to main/extras/source/autotext/lang/en-US/acor_en-US.dat.
Comment 2 SVN Robot 2014-01-21 16:36:09 UTC
"hanya" committed SVN revision 1560073 into trunk:
#i124067# remove naive entry from auto correct list for en-US
Comment 3 hanya 2014-01-21 16:38:40 UTC
Fixed on trunk for en-US autocorrect.
Auto correct for en-AU, en-GB, eu, ja and ko languages also contains from "naive" to "naïve" correction.
Comment 4 Andrea Pescetti 2014-01-21 23:39:38 UTC
But is the original autocorrect behavior (naive -> naïve) correct, or is it just suggesting a "more correct" variant but naive is fine? Normally autocorrect should only correct wrong words.
