Description maccy 2007-04-11 15:45:54 UTC
German thesaurus has leading "-" in "meanings" list and also puts leading "-"
into "Replace" field when double-clicking on a "meanings" entry. The English
thesaurus shows (noun), (verb) and so on instead of "-", information that the
German thesaurus does not provide. The English thesaurus however does not move
that (word type) information into the "Replace" field when double-clicking that
meaning. Apart from that it would be good if that "-" would not be displayed at
all as it is merely confusing.

Same happens in the Polish thesaurus (structure is the same). Confirming and
correcting the summary line.

Comment 4 stefan.baltzer 2007-09-20 10:54:49 UTC
SBA: A scenario to reproduce:
 - Text set to German.
 - Enter "Haus"
 - call Thesaurus
-> in "meaning" field, there are two entries: "- Bau" and "- Familie"
- with a SINGLE click on "- Familie", the replacement string stays "Haus", the
list below giving a choice of proposals, all works fine then.
- But with a DOUBLE click on "- Familie", the replacement string becomes "-
Familie" too, clicking "OK" brings the unwanted dash into the text.

SBA: I am not aware if this is within the dicts, the break iterator or the
Put khong on CC.

SBA->Nemeth: Please proceed.

It seems, this is a dictionary issue. Removing dashes solves the problem:

cat th_de_DE_v2.dat | sed 's/^-|/|/' > th_de_DE_v2_fixed.dat
cat *fixed.dat | ~/MyThes-1.0/ >th_de_DE_v2_fixed.dat.idx

OOo 3.1 is released. Please check the issue, if it still exists in OOo 3.1. If
