Description:
Version: 6.0.2.1
Build ID: f7f06a8f319e4b62f9bc5095aa112a65d2f3ac89

When you enter the French symbol "«", you need to have "«" following by a non-breaking space. The same thing with "«" but preceding by a non-breaking space.

A work-around is to type a word between English symbol " like "test" which writes automatly « test » but you cannot use the French symbols « and » on you keyboard (which is more efficient on the Linux keyboard).

This fails also with 5.x Writer version...

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Frecn environment
2. Enter the following word: «test»
3. Compare with "test"

Actual Results:  
2. «test»
3. « test »

Expected Results:
2. «test»
3. « test »


Reproducible: Always

Hi patrice,

Verify In Tools > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options... Localized Options Tab
Add non-breaking space before specific punctuation marks in French text
is ticked.
Does this give you the correct non-breating space?
Comment 2 patrice.karatchentzeff 2018-04-24 08:43:14 UTC
Yes it is ticked (S and R).

It does not correct the problem.

Thanks for your support.

Hi Patrice,

I assume that you meant: 
Expected Results:
2. « test »
3. « test »
otherwise expected would be as actual and all would be OK.

And you do not need a french environment to test it, it is sufficient to set the language of the paragraph to French; this will make tests by people who do not use  a french environment normally (and would have to install the language package first) much easier.

I tested this on Windows, and I have used special characters or the clipboard to simulate the keys for the guillemets available for you. And I tested it in the french environment too, to be sure if there's a difference. There is none.

So I set the status to NEW.
