Description Telesto 2018-08-09 13:48:33 UTC
Autocomplete is a little overzealous. I get three entries Word completion entr's when typing the composition word "hulpvaardigheid"  
1. Hulpvaar (a non-existing word)
2. Hulpvaardig (a normal dictionary word)
3. Hulpvaardigheid (a normal dictionary word)

I would only expect hulpvaardigheid

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer (with a dutch language & dutch dictionary)
2. Type "hulpvaardigheid" 
3. Type "hulpvaardigheid" again an take notice at the suggestions or look at Tools -> AutoCorrect -> Autocorrect options -> Word Completion

Actual Results:
Three entries in the Word completion list

Expected Results:
Only one entry

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Comment 20 Telesto 2020-04-13 11:18:16 UTC
There are 3 issues
1. The fact that multiple words are added to autocomplete while typing 1 word.
(a) Enable automatic spell checking (English)
(b) Type: professionalization. 
(c) See: Tools -> Autocorrect -> Autocorrect Options -> Word Completion
Results (a) profession; (b) professional; (c) professionalization to the auto-complete list. Suggestions are existing words but unwanted.  

2. The seconds issue is with a arithmetic typing pace. Small interruptions cause additional words which don't exist. 
(a) Enabled autotomatic spell checking (English)
(b) Type: Third-party (with some delay p ... a... r... t... y)
Results in: Third-pa; Third-par; Third-part & Third-party See: Tools -> Autocorrect -> Autocorrect Options -> Word Completion

3. Deleting an entry in Tools -> Autocorrect -> Autocorrect Options -> Word Completion has no effect until restart 

This bug is about issue number 2. Still reproducible with
