Description sforbes 2004-07-18 02:06:01 UTC
in each Hebrew document, when typing some Hebrew words after the 1st time, OOo
suggests completey incurrect auto-complete for those words, adding letters that
where never in the original word.
Thus, if the user wants to enter them and still use the auto complete for other
words, he must finish typing the word while OOo displays a completly non-sese
word, and then go back and delete the characters that don't belong.

I went in the auto-correct settings, and the word list there looks ok, so I am
not sure where OOo is getting the wrong words from.

I am attaching two sample documents that show the problem, so you can repro it

* rel.sxw: Try typing the 4th word in the document (going RTL) and/or the 15th
word in the first paragraph (going RTL, not counting the title).
* pkg_linux.sxw: Try typing the 2nd word in the document (going RTL) and/or the
3rd word in the document (going RTL) and/or the 5th word in the document (there
are more examples in the same doc, but I think the idea is pretty clear).

Can you confirm that this issue still occures?
If yes:
- Are you talking about Auto-Complition or Auto-Correction (both in the
auto-correct dialog)?
The Auto-complition list does not contain any Hebrew text.
- please give us the phonetic version of the words to type to reproduce the issue.

works just fine (i also checked the attached files) on version 2.4.0 (debian sid)
Comment 8 Joost Andrae 2008-07-09 11:12:05 UTC
retarget to 3.1
Comment 9 Oliver Specht 2008-07-21 08:44:57 UTC
Checked on Windows and Solaris (couldn't get an IME on Linux to work :-( ) and
it works as expected in DEV300m24.
