Description stefan.baltzer 2005-01-19 15:05:09 UTC
SBA: To reproduce:
[enable Collection of words and word completion if needed]
New document
type "1,000,000,000 <Enter>"
type "1,000 <Enter>"
-> the "1,000" gets changed to "1,000,000,0"

Note: Same with Chapter numbers like "" that are typed in the text
(many users don't use references)
I regard this as a defect, not an enhancement. Numbers are not words and the
auto completion of numbers hardly ever makes sense. Besides, "wrong" numbers are
NOT spotted by the Spellcheck, nor do they raise attention while cross-reading a

SBA->OS: As dicussed, counting and spellchecking word with numbers is a feature,
therefore this must be solved within the Word Completion.
