Try to make a auutocorerction rule for greek language was hard:
pattern `υυ change to U774 (COMBINING BREVE) works only if type it at space.
if type some word and place `υυ - nothing chages,
inserting pattern in a word - also nothing changes.
Same happens with Russian default autocorrections :
pattern <-> - works fine only after space.
if pattern types after word - char '<' leave after word, and only '->' will be corrected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set russian language on text, and turn on autocorrection on type
2. type some word with <-> like гыгыг<->
you get autocorrection гыгыг<→
3. set text language greek.
4. add to greek autocorrection rules `υυ change to U774 (COMBINING BREVE)
5. type after space `υυ
here you got U774 character after change
6. type some letter and `υυ - like ο`υυ
no autocorrection here
autocorrection works only at begining of word, and it changes only when some space delimiter enter (space, tab, enter)
expectis normal autocorrection during word type: first char of a entered pattern must normaly take into account.
expects normal autocorrection exactly after pattern recognize - when all chars of pattern typed, not only after space/tab/enter

bug has explored on libreoffice 6.0.5 on win8.1 (x64)
release 6.1 also same bug
I've tried on 188.8.131.52 but it doesn't result, can you send me some other infos please?
I moved this bug with status: NEEDINFO
Well, i try new version v184.108.40.206 with same results.
Maybe significant that i use russian windows 8.1 and russian build of LibreOffice?
this bug reproduces even on English US language:
by default english autocorrection dictionary have rule about "<->"
1) type " <-> " - this leads autocorrection -> ↔
2) type " a<-> " - this produces " a<→ "
3) type " a<->." - this produces " a<→."
4) type " a<->/" - this nothing chages
So, you see:
- any letter before autocoreection pattern breacs first char.
- autocorrection works only on whole word. pattern word must be noted with space or delimiters.
contrary, MS windows autocorrection works perfecty - pattern triggers in any position of typed text, and replaces directly on typing.
Repro. In 3.3.0, it did not even produce the last arrow, so looks like someone changed something after it. Let's still call it inherited.

autocorrection is still like shit in LO7.1 :
used russian language, have set autocorrection on type.
default rules have:
1) -- : –
--> : →
-+ : ±
ok, try type --> , and on '>' it corrects two first chars, so have
--> : –>
expects that will bw used longer rule so --> should change to →
if type a-->, it keep char after letter, so have
a--> : a–→
it not better
if try to enter -+ - it not autocorrects. So looks like autocorrect on -+ mulfunction completely.
