Description Mihkel Tõnnov 2017-02-19 22:03:13 UTC
If I create a bibliography entry with the following data:
Short name: Test
Author: Author
Title: Title
Year: 2017

...and add a bibliography list with following structure:
[Sh][ = ][Au][, ]Ti[, ][Ye][.]

...then the respective entry is shown like this in the actual bibliography list:
Tes = Autho, Titl, 201.

For comparison, if structure is just "[Sh][][Au][][Ti][][Ye]" without any spaces or commas between the fields, it gets shown as "TestAuthorTitle2017" -- that is, nothing is clipped. So the bug is somehow triggered by the "separator" characters/spaces between the bibliography structure fields.

This is a regression in LibO 5.3 -- it works as expected in 5.2.
Broken at least by beta 1, maybe earlier; still broken in

Bibliography test (generated with LibO 5.2)

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1) Open attached test document in LibO 5.3
2) Refresh bibliography list
3) Observe how the last characters disappear :)
