Description ingenstans 2004-10-14 16:27:00 UTC

jumping the cursor to the beginning of a sentence jumps to the end instead if 
the cursor is in a sentence which follows an emppty paragraph (two carriage 

Correspondingly, depeting to the beginning of such a sentence deletes instead 
from the cursor to the end.

Placing anything inside the empty paragraph, even a space, is a workaround.

The attached document is a text document, which contains the following text:
First sentence

begin and end

when I now place the cursor somewhere in the second sentence and run the macro

	viewCursor = ThisComponent.currentController.getViewCursor	
	xCursor = thiscomponent.text.createTextCursorByRange(viewCursor.start)
	msgbox xCursor.String

the word "begin" is returned as expected ... I used a m_57 ... am I missing
something ?
Comment 3 ingenstans 2004-10-20 17:37:24 UTC
That's strange. I can definitely reproduce it in m56. 

Running this macro:

Sub bugtest
dim viewcursor
dim xcursor
viewCursor = ThisComponent.currentController.getViewCursor
xCursor = thiscomponent.text.createTextCursorByRange(viewCursor.start)
' xCursor.goRight(5,true)
msgbox xCursor.getString
end sub

with the cursor in the middle of "test" in a document that says


a test

and so is this."

gives me a message of "st" and not "is a"

could you check that in m57, since you've got it.

SW->TL: ok the problem isn't "gotoStartOfSentence" which works fine, but
"gotoPreviousSentence" ... the macro provided by andrewb shows indeed the
described behaviour

Set to target OOoLater due to lack of resources.
