Description peter 2019-10-30 20:15:28 UTC
This tool doesn't conform to Tools.Autocorrect.Autocorrect options. If only Use replacement table is selected and all other options are deselected, it doesn't apply all items in replacement table and it applies some styles, and not even includes all style changes into list of changes (for Apply and Edit changes command).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deselect all autocorrect options, except for Use replacement table
2. Add some item into replacement table for all languages, e.g. x to xx, including one that changes => to special character ⇒
3. Write text with While typing checked to check if it works, e.g. x => x
4. Uncheck While typing and write the same text, e.g. x => x
5. Use command Tools.Autocorrect.Apply and Edit changes 

Actual Results:
xx => xx
Default style is changed to Text body style or Heading 3
list of changes contains only change from x to xx, but not style change

Expected Results:
xx ⇒ xx
without any changes in styles (should remain Default style)
all changes are in the list of changes

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

If you will react after one month there will be always newer version.
I confirm that bug is still there in version
It takes 3 minutes to check the bug.
You can select "Replacements and exceptions for language: [All]" in Tools.AutoCorrect.AutoCorrect Options if you want to speedup process not influencing your personal settings.
