Description Ulrich Windl 2016-11-24 08:36:14 UTC
For using English phrases in a German document, I have defines a character format named "Englisch" (The German word for "English") that only sets the text language to English. That works.
However the following problem exists: If there is a misspelled word in a phrase tagged with the "Englisch" character format, and I choose the right mouse button to fix the word, the word is fixed, but the character format is lost (it's "Standard" then). The character format shouldn't be changed by spell correction!

Seems to be one of the problems of 'exchanging' content where LibreOffice in reality deletes content and then inserts new content. This results in losing formatting/style definitions.

Cannot reproduce in nightly build:

Thanks, Phil. I guess it's a duplicate of bug 51423 as well.

Just to be sure: I could reproduce in like this:
(Using German localization, sorry)
Add some random letters and a word "bappel" in the middle.
Then mark the first letter and assign some character style to it (I mean via style sheet).
The right click on that word and accept "Pappel" as correct spelling.
The spelling changes and the assigned character style is gone.
It also happens when I assign the character style directly (not using a style sheet).

Ulrich: you can try with a master build to be sure https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html
The fix is suspected to be a side-effect of fixing bug 135721
