Description jteera5 2018-08-20 10:23:51 UTC
Cannot type ฤา , in that sequence, using Thai keyboard. When pressed ฤ, the character was input and shown on the screen. But when า was pressed immediately after ฤ OO didn't accept the า. This leads to typing errors since users expect the outcome ฤา.

This happens in Writer, Calc, Impress and Draw that I tried. Not in other Windows applications and not in LibreOffice either.

Current workaround is to type "ฤ า" then delete the space.

On an English (QWERTY) keyboard with Thai (Kedmanee), the ฤ key is at shift-a position (Uppercase a, Caps Lock off). And the า key is at k key (lowercase k).

Two years passed and the issue still is unconfirmed. I'd like to report that this problem continues in the current version 4.1.7. The developer or maintainer of this part of AOO can confirm it easily by adding Thai keyboard in Windows.
