Description alex_ks 2007-06-22 18:21:08 UTC
when i write "x_1, x_2, dotslow, x_n" i mean "," must be between x'es, but it 
goes to lower index so i need to write "x_1 , x_2 , dotslow , x_n" that is 
extreemly uncomfortable
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2007-06-22 20:07:08 UTC
That has to be written in this way since old StarOffice 5. Therefore I think,
that it is no defect, but a valid enhancement request.
Comment 2 alex_ks 2007-06-22 20:26:21 UTC
Star office -- may be, but it is open office? not the star one :)
Actualy i see why it is so -- because sombody wants to write x_i,j except x_{i,
j} so may be it is useful to make two different situation -- when " " symbol 
goes after "," or when it goes not. In second situation it goes to lower index 
and in first it goes not. It will be not strong logicaly but, i think, wery

I assume this is a defect. If you write something like x_n? the question mark is
interpreted correctly. The comma or punctuation mark should also be recognized
like other marks.

Hm strange, I though this is regression in OO3 as I had practically everywhere
x_1,x_2 and after I've installed OO3 I had to redo all my formulas...

But anyway I agree that this is a bug: 1. ',' seems to be the ONLY letter which
recognized as a part of index and this is really strange, I see no logic after
this behavior. 2. this is not how TeX works so this makes OO less comfortable
for TeX users. Please fix this.
