Description Gozo Gozoso 2019-09-12 13:23:49 UTC
I need to write lines that start with an indentation (TAB key) and then -
When I write what I need and press RETURN the line or paragraph automatically justifies itself to the left and the indentation disappears. It seems it happens only with the arithmetic symbols - + and *. It does not happen with =

It happens with versions 6.2.5, 6.2.7 and 6.3

I use of to write dialog in a novel, as I don't want all the text indented but only the first line with a hyphen, as it happens with bullet points. If this is not a bug it was not a good idea to implement it, at least for people like me. However in previous versions of libreoffice I could do it without a problem.

Steps to Reproduce: tab key in a new line -, + or * and a blank space. Then write something return.

Actual Results:
the tab indentation will disappear and the - is justified to the left.

Expected Results:
I don't know what you mean with expected results. I would expect the TAB indentation to stay like when I do the same with any other sing.

Reproducible: Always
