Description Jack Tanner 2007-07-25 11:35:49 EDT
Description of problem:

There are two issues with the autocorrect dialog (Tools, AutoCorrect) when one
compares it to OOO 2.2.1 on win32:

1. There's no Replace tab.
2. Under the Options tab, the first checkbox doesn't have a corresponding text
label (on win32, it's "use replacement table").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

openoffice.org-impress-2.2.0-14.11 on x86-64.
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2007-07-25 11:50:14 EDT
Sorry :-(

Red Hat reviews and scrubs its code for intellectual property issues. Our
approach has always been conservative, i.e., if there is any question, resolve
the issue or remove the code.  Red Hat recently implemented a number of changes
in its distribution of OpenOffice to address such issues.  These changes should
not be construed as implying any immediate intellectual property problem;
rather, they have been implemented to assure that no such immediate problems
arise. While implementing these changes in our own distribution of OpenOffice,
we have also made them available upstream to the OpenOffice project.
Comment 2 Jack Tanner 2007-07-25 12:28:07 EDT
Fine, but in that case there should not even be a checkbox under the Options
tab. Right now there's one with no label, i.e., the feature wasn't removed cleanly.

P.S. Holy cow, that's got to be one obvious patent.

indeed, sloppy, heads shall roll. I'll retitle, I can fix that.
