Description To Do 2019-10-17 08:24:47 UTC
Description:
When replacing single and double quotation marks with typographic ones, autocorrect works as it should when typing, but when this is someone uses the Tools, Autocorrect, Apply menu item, quotation marks are not changed unless the defaults are changed and set manually.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document that has straight single and double quotes.
2. Choose Tools, Autocorrect, Apply. (Nothing happens to the quotation marks)
3. Try typing quotation marks and, if they are set to be updated, they are automatically corrected.


Actual Results:
The quotation marks are not updated.

Expected Results:
The quotation marks are changed to typographic (curved) ones.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The software should respect the localisation settings irrespective if it is while typing or when applied after.

To be certain the reported issue is not related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your Libreoffice profile (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile) and re-test?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

Unfortunately, this Apply works only on paragraphs with Default paragraph settings, so you must change paragraph style to use it to correct quotation marks automatically.

I think, this is a UI bug, so it would be better to change that for a question, or something else.
