Description hochhaltinger 2002-06-14 14:50:08 UTC
Normally the " - " is replaced by " -- " (where "--" = Alt-0150). 
(in other words: 
The Sequence 
is replaced normally by 

In one special 
case, only if the last character before the first [blank] is the german "unquote" character, this 
replacement is NOT made by OpenOffice 1.0. 

it stays as: 
     [a word][german unquote][blank][-

Reporter, I have some questions concerning your bug report:
Could you attach an example-file?
What problems are caused by that "bug" 
Do you still see it in OOo 1.0.3?

This bug now is confirmed and should get status "NEW" (I have no
rights to change status)

Hi OOo-staff,
it is quite dispiriting for all helpers If there is absolutely no
reaction from OOo-staff to the bug-reports - not even a change of the
issue status from unconfirmed to new!

This bug is well known, there is no problem to reproduce it, but
status stays on "unconfirmed" and stays and stays and stays ....

Confirmed. Reproducible with OOo 1.1 beta2 on Windows 2000. 

Auto replacement does not replace short dash with endash as it should
after a german closing double quote.

Perhaps dash replacement should generally be less restrictive - it
doesn't work after any of !§$%&)}]

SBA->RainerBielefeld: Feel free to become member of the QA
project. After running through, say, 2000 bugs (some of them with more
or less helpful descriptions 10 times longer than this one you would
think and write slightly different. Thanks for your comprehension.

SBA->OS: Same in Version 644m13s2. It looks like the two
AutoCorrection features "Custom Quotes" and "dashes" refuse to work at
the same time.
Comment 8 Oliver Specht 2003-06-12 11:40:34 UTC
OS: Title changed. 
The problem is not one special quote. 
The AutoCorrection replaces the dash only when it's included in
characters, numbers and brackets. It has to be determined which other
characters should be allowed or not.
