Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-10-15 22:09:41 UTC
From bug 113134 comment 15, "when you select the Heh by keyboard, it will also select the Mapiq, which will result in the character appearing correctly when changing the font, but if you select the Heh by mouse, it will not select the Mapiq, resulting in no change of the Mapiq when changing the font.

See screencast [attachment 137001 [details]] from 00:36.

This didnt happen with the arabic diacritics i tried, and dont know all the hebrew ones that are available to test, so i'll leave it to Eyal and Lior to see if it is an isolated hebrew diacritic or does it happen to all.

Reproduced in:

Build ID: 9050854c35c389466923f0224a36572d36cd471a
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.9; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.utf8); Calc: group

OS: Debian 64bit Stretch (Debian 9.2, with some backported packages)

In some experiments, both character and Mapiq were selected by mouse, yielding correct placement of the Mapiq when font was changed. In other experiments, only the character was selected and the reported behavior was seen.

This bug still manifests with build:

Build ID: d7547858d014d4cf69878db179d326fc3483e082
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.2; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: he-IL (en_IL); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

Reproduction instructions:

1. Create a new document
2. Be in an RTL paragraph
3. Insert the character ה (Hebrew letter He) - either by typing it in or using Insert Special Character
4. Use the Insert Special Character to insert a Hebrew Dagesh-or-Mapiq (U+5BC)
5. The Dagesh/Mapiq point will appear to the side of the He, not within it (this is bug 113134)
6. Select the He with the mouse.
7. Change the font family to another Hebrew family (e.g. from David CLM to Frank Ruehel CLM)
8. The Dagesh/Mapiq point will stay to the side of the He, not within it
9. Select the He with the keyboard
10. Change the Hebrew font back (e.g. from Frank Ruehel CLM to David CM)
11. The Dagesh/Mapiq point will now be drawn within the letter He
