Description malte_timmermann 2003-06-27 09:08:28 UTC
Per default number recognition is on. My locale is German, and I try to insert 
08/02 in a table => no chance!
Even if I use format/numbering to tell the cell the format is text, this will 
be overwritten when I leave the cell.

Assigned to MIB
Comment 2 michael.brauer 2003-06-30 09:51:26 UTC
MIB: There is an easy work-around: Switching Auto-Detection of number
formats off => P4
MIB->FT: The Auto-Detection of number formats seems to detects US date
formates even if a german locale is active. Bug or Feature?

Comment 3 malte_timmermann 2003-06-30 13:00:19 UTC
I wouldn't call that fixed, just because there is a work around, 
which is hard to find.

In Calc I can set the format to text, and everything is fine, so I 
consider the Writer behavior as a bug, and not as a feature.
Comment 4 andreas.martens 2003-07-30 09:28:35 UTC
Even when automatic number detection works as defined, we need an
intuitive way to suppress it for single cells.

->OS: The user inserts his text then he open the numberformat-dialog.
The default format is "Text", so he click the ok button. Does it make
sense to insert a "hard" number format "Text" which would disable the
automatic number recognition for this cell? Please check this.

->FME: If the automatic number detection changed the input of the
user, he may use the "Undo". So far so good. Unfortunately if he leave
the cell afterwards the automatic number detection changes the format
again. This should be suppressed.
Comment 5 andreas.martens 2003-07-30 09:31:59 UTC
Please ask FT if we want a hard format and then reassign this bug to FME.
Comment 6 malte_timmermann 2003-08-01 09:51:48 UTC
MT->FME: It would help if undo would only undo the 'text correction', 
but let the cursor stay in the new cell...

os->hbrinkm: The cursor should not return to the changed cell.
