Description demarcoc 2007-03-30 03:43:39 UTC
In OOo 2.2, I've found that when I insert a character from the Symbol font while
working in Times New Roman, the font is changed to Symbol.

Specifics are as follows:

The line in question starts in Times New Roman, and contains a problem number, a
space, and an italic character (all in Times New Roman).

From there, a special character is inserted from the Symbol font. In previous
versions of OOo, this did not change the base font to Symbol. Now, it does.

I will try to attach an example. In that example, I was attempting to type an
italicized capital M, the "horseshoe" special character from the Symbol font,
and an italicized capital P, which I wanted to be back in Times New Roman. The
result is that the italicized capital P is replaced with an italicaized capital
"pi," the corresponding symbol from the Symbol font.

I have noted that if the beginning of the document or the beginning of the line
is in regular, as opposed to italic, this doesn't happen.

MRU->AMA: perhaps another one from "swautomaticstyles"?
New document, type some characters, click "Italic" button, insert e.g. a greek
character from "Symbol" font via "Special character" dialog -> after this the
font will remain in "Symbol" font.

Confirmed on Linux also (Ubuntu 6.06).

Yes, our new automatic style concept makes it difficult to expand some
attributes (like the italic) and not to expand other attributes (like the font).
We have to do some analyzes and re-coding to make this work again.
