Description norbert2 2006-05-30 20:46:30 UTC

- please open the attached formula

- double-click the word "Test": The word "Test" becomes selected in the

- double-click the omega-character: only "OMEGA" is selected, but "%OMEGA"
should be selected.

Intersting is the fact that a single %-character is handled as very small
invisible charcter within the rendered formula, that can be selected. This is
shown in the attached screenshot; it's the "line" between the dot and the "d".

Special characters that are described with a %-character should be handled as
one solid character. This means that a double-click on special character within
the rendered formula should also select the %-character.

MRU->TL: when selecting a character from the symbol sets in the formula, the
whole string including the % sign should be selected in the command window.

I see the error in OOo3.2, but no longer in OOo3.3RC8 and DEV300m95.
