Description isr81 2005-01-19 02:19:46 UTC
When entering a non-breaking character between two objects which are at the end
of a line, the objects become separated. I think the correct behaviour should be
that both are moved to the next line.

Also, when tampering with the text of the line, the second object can go out of
the page borders. When the file is saved and reloaded, the objects become
separated again.

MRU->FME: I think, the non-breaking spaces haven't been designed to keep objects
together until now. But this is a thing which we can do for future OO's.

I was able to reproduce this bug on a Windows 2000 ver. 5.00.2195 system on a 
machine with a 2 Ghz CPU.
The version of OO I used was 1.1.4.

I downloaded the attached file and replicated the simple steps in the file 
where the bug became apparent.

I would have to agree isr81's 1st point that when a NON-breaking character is 
used between 2 objects at the end of the line, the correct behaviour should be 
to move both objects to the new line.  When the 2nd object moves onto and off 
the page borders, as more text is added to the line, it never gets lost or 
deleted(even though the user can't see it)  and re-appears after a re-load.  
Some may argue that this makes the bug a cosmopolitan type bug as opposed to a 
functional one, but it is a bug none the less.
