Description marcus.knappert 2017-05-06 19:50:33 UTC
Created attachment 133106 [details]
Example screenshot

Under certain circumstances characters can overlap, for example in the sequence "f?". 

In order to provoke the bug the following three formattings must be applied:
*Both or at least the last letter must be "Highlight Colour".
*The two letters must differentiate in being italic and being underlined.

For example when both letters are marked yellow and the "f" in "f?" is italic but not the "?", the "?" does overlap with the "f". The same happens with other large letters, for example "T". 

Please find a screenshot with an example attached.

The bug can be found in Writer and Impress but not in calc.

Sorry, I have to correct myself: Only two conditions must apply, not three.
