Description Pranav Kant 2017-03-07 11:13:47 UTC
- While change tracking is turned off, write 'as'
- Turn change tracking on
- Write 'df'
- Hit space
- The autocorrect will capitalize first character ('a' -> 'A') and include that character in the change tracking.

Expected behavior:
The capitalized 'A' should not be included in the change tracking

Why shouldn't it be? The replacement was made after enabling track changes.

In fact, I think the incorrect part is that the replaced "a" isn't included (eg. it should look very similar to going back, and changing "a" to "A" manually after enabling track changes).

I would argue it was not a user change, it was a change made by libreoffice itself. To be honest, not sure what should be the correct behavior here.

Yeah, this too.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
 
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)


If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
