Description John Lance 2019-06-27 15:03:27 UTC
Case 1: Italicized word followed by space that is not italicized will run into the next word with no space between.

Case 2: Italicized word followed by italicized space will behave properly.
Case 2 is a workaround that may not be very obvious to figure out.

Case 3: Italicized word followed by not-italicized character other than a space seems to be fine.  I haven't checked all combinations.

I am using LibreOffice Version: (x64)
Build ID: 2412653d852ce75f65fbfa83fb7e7b669a126d64

ePub export is using version 3 with split on page break and a fixed layout method.

I'm using US-English

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type in a sentence with sporadic italicized words or parts of words with some followed by normal spaces, some by italicized spaces, and some followed by punctuation.
2. File->Export As->Export As EPUB
3. Export as version 3.0
4. Use Fixed layout

Actual Results:
Italicized words followed by non italicized space will run on into the next word in the export.  A space that is also italicized after the italicized word will be properly presented and the italicized word will not run on into the next word.

Expected Results:
Output should follow the formatting as presented whether a space is italicized or not.

Reproducible: Always

Shows some settings and also some italicized words in the document.

I've already done the workaround by italicizing the spaces following italicized words in a document I was working in for someone.  I did a search to hi-lite and show italicization.  I'm also showing specific export settings here.
