Description haui 2005-06-21 17:11:22 UTC
- Enter some text in a default text box on some slide. 
- Place the cursor as shown below, where | denotes the cursor:

This| is a test.

- Press Ctrl-Delete. 
- I would be happy with either of the following possible results:

This|is a test.
This| a test.
This|a test.

- Unfortunately the word to the *left* is deleted, if
  Ctrl-delete is pressed and a space follows the cursor 
  position. The unexpected result is:

| is a test.

However, the behavior is somehow consistent, since Ctrl-backspace deletes to the
right (see Issue 50014). :-(

Ctrl-delete also deletes to the left, if the cursor is at the end of a line.

Just for info, some related problems:
 Issue 23872 - Deleting the space with ctrl+backspace/delete
 Issue 50014 - Ctrl backspace (under rare circumstances) deletes to the right of
the cursor
 Issue 51051 - Ctrl-delete deletes to the left, if a space follows the cursor

I cannot reproduce it with AOO 4.1.1. so it is likely resolved by some other bugfix. I resolve this issue with "irreproducible". Feel free to reopen it, if you can still reproduce it with a current build.
