Description rfvuhbtg 2007-10-05 20:01:12 UTC
In Calc, if I try to use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+B or Ctrl+Shift+P to
apply subscripts or superscripts, the formatting disappears as soon as I let go
of Ctrl and Shift.

To reproduce:

1)  Open an new Calc spreadsheet.
2)  Type "CO2" into a cell.  Go into the entry bar and highlight the 2
3)  Use either shortcut mentioned above.  The subscript or superscript will
work, but the text will go back to normal as soon as you let go of Ctrl and Shift.  

Drilling through the menu bar to get to the character formatting menu works
correctly, but these shortcuts don't seem to work.  The changes don't stick.

Confirming with 2.4m2 on WInXP - as described.

This issue is still open with 3.0

This issue appears to be closed as of OpenOffice 3.1, at least on Linux.  When
trying to reproduce the issue in OO 3.1 Linux, the superscripts and subscripts
work in the data cell, even after Ctrl and Shift are released.  (I suppose
additional confirmation from another user(s) might be good though.)

(The character changes only in the data cell, not the entry bar, but then the
data cell is what really matters after all, I don't even know if the entry bar
can do something like that, and I can't remember off hand whether Excel changed
the entry bar character or not, so I'd say "good enough".  That last part would
count as a minor cosmetic enhancement at best; the end result appears to work now.)
