Description Jordi 2016-10-15 19:14:44 UTC
Autocorrect does not perform correction when using Greek quotation marks « and »

This is regardless of the "localized options quote replacement" setting as this setting does not apply in this instance.

" " double quotes fails with "localized options quote replacement" on but works when it is off.

« » fail regardless of "localized options quote replacement" setting

As tommy27 commented, it looks like LO does not recognise « and » as punctuation.

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Enter « Greek word »
3. autocorrect does not replace words

Actual Results:

as shown in comment #3 in bug 101851 the likely cause,

 @Lazlo Nemeth
 can we add those « and » to the "autocorrect" triggers list?
