Description dbiberdorf 2003-11-03 03:55:46 UTC
If I create a footnote in OO 1.1 and immediately enable italics, for example, to
type "ibid" or the title of a book, the footnote number gets italicized, too.
The only way I've found around this is to first type a space, THEN enable
italics, type my text, then remove the space from the start of the footnote.

My footnote numbers should NOT be italicized simply because the initial text of
the footnote is italicized. This happens a lot when footnoting citations in
academic papers.

Comment 2 guido.pinkernell 2004-02-01 17:10:36 UTC
This actually happens with any numbered list, whether that's a footnote or a
simple numbered list within the text area: Changing the character typeface to
italics or bold right after inserting a numbering the number gets changed too.
This is expected behaviour, however I do see that this is a problem with footnotes.

I will change this to an RFE, and set to New.

set target to OOo later. this may be changed just set as default.
Comment 4 jack.warchold 2004-02-11 13:26:12 UTC
yes this happend with any numbered list. i saw some bugs requesting for change in 
this feature. but as far as this is not realy a bug i only can change the issue type of 
this issue to enhancement and reassign this to the owner of enhancementissues to 
make visible that a change of this behaviour is hardly requested.
changed issuetype to enhancement

Text file showing italic bug
Comment 6 rick_jenkins 2004-02-12 21:58:00 UTC
This bug can be seen in a text file with an image, attached. The text following
the eps image always appears italic, regardless of settings, and it prints in
italics too. If the same file is created under StarOffice 6.0, then read in to
OpenOffice 1.1.0, the bug is not seen. Font is important: the bug is not seen if
the font is changed from Helvetica to Lucida Sans. Font size does not seem to
affect the bug.
