Description jonwigner 2004-02-02 19:33:24 UTC
Using spreadsheet in OpenOffice 1.1.0 under Win XP, with auto spellcheck on 
and when the document is saved as MS excel or starcalc formats AND opened from 
file (as opposed to creating and saving without closing OpenOffice). no 
trouble when saved as .sxc file or when file unsaved

An attempt to format a cell containing text with a spelling mistake (no 
trouble when only some text in a cell is selected) using [i], [B] or font-size 
toolbar buttons or Format|Cells...|Font gives the following situation:

The formatting does not appear on the selected cell, although toolbar appears 
as though it has (e.g. font size changes in box on toolbar, but actual text 
remains same size). If the misspelt word is right-clicked and a correct 
spelling is chosen or Ignore All is clicked, the toolbar display returns to 
the original settings.

Step-by-step to get problem:
Start OOo Spreadsheet
Ensure Tools|Spellcheck|Auto spellcheck is selected
Type "This is a spolling mistake<Enter>" (will appear in cell A1)

File|Save as... Choose Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP (.xls;.xlw) in Save as type
Click Save

In message box "Saving in external formats may cause information loss..." click 

File|1 (Opening last file)
Click on cell A1 (selecting cell, not the text in the cell)

Click [B] on toolbar (or [i] or other formatting)
Text in cell A1 does not appear bold.
