Description 2016-09-09 04:53:48 UTC
If entering a function over the sidebar you usually get "func{<?>}" (without whitespace). For example:

abs{<?>}, sqrt{<?>}, etc.

Only when entering "Factorial" over the sidebar, you get "fact {<?>}" (with whitespace). I think this should be changed in "fact{<?>}" for consistency reasons.

Confirmed the function strings are composed inconsistently into the formula editor when entering function from the "Elements" sidebar.

This issue came in with OOo and is not only from the Elements sidebar dock introduced at 4.1, but also is present in the original floating elements dialog.
