OOo writer italic format problem..
Last modified: 2008-06-25 22:44:17 EDT
Description of problem:
sometimes if i give an italic (less often bold) format, it happen that i can't
remove this format. the only way is to select a part of text.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it happen usually if i use the italic before to press the return key.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select the italic format (CTRL+I)
4.now you can remove the italic format, but if you want to use it again you
sometimes it happen the opposite: you think it's ok but you can just remove
italic, and to give this format you've to select the text.. i.e. try:
1. make a list with the - sign,
2. write something not italic,
3. write the again, but italic,
4. write not italic,
now it's impossible to write italic again without selecting the target text.
I don't understand your problem at all. Blank document, Ctrl+I I am in italic.
Ctrl+I I am not in italic. Ctrl+I I am in italic again. Ctrl+I. Gives as
expected, italic text, non-italic text, and the italic text again.
I've seen this odd italic formating as well. But it's hard to reproduce, because
it appears randomly (but quite often).
when i start or finish a line (return key) with the italic format then it happen
that i can't change it again.
try to write some lines, changing the format.
Still baffled, I don't see this nor ever had the problem myself. Is there a
guaranteed exact set of steps to make it happen.
i just reproduced it. here there are the steps..
1. open OOoWriter,
2. [CTRL+I] (write something) in italic
3. [CTRL+I] *to write the next in normal*
4. (write something) in normal
5. [CTRL+I] now it has no effect..
7. [CTRL+I] now it has its own effect, but just to the next normal..
indeed, I see it with that example in F8, strangely not with to-be-F9 in 2.4.0
so it's like known and fixed, if I can find it I'll stick it into an F8 update
Will be in >= 2.3.0-6.12
