After entering an autotext-shortcut, there must be a white space before pressing F3 -> this is impractical.
It would be better if the text BEFORE the cursor was interpreted as an autotext-shortcut (this is how it works in MS Word).
Example (AT = Autotext-Shortcut, [F3] = Keypress)
AT[F3] improvement -> works, but is impractical while editing an existing text
AT[F3]improvement -> is misinterpretet as autotext-shortcut "ATimprovement"
I confirm it with

There must be a space between Autotext-Shortcut and the following word.

Mike, I confirm, that a blank space is no longer needed. But the problem is now, that LO always adds a paragraph break after AutoText. Is this the intended behaviour? For some AutoText this is very practical, for other it is not.

Do you mean that this has changed after the fix mentioned in comment 4? If this existed before, then that should be a separate issue.

It's also in older versions. Sorry.
