Description SHIBATA Nobufumi 2019-11-05 05:22:56 UTC
Description:
I always thank you for your contribution.

macOS's JapaneseIME provides a function to reconversion text by pressing twice 'かな (kana)' key (Or control+shift+R). But In LibreOffice, I cannot use this function.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Input Japanese Text
2. Select It
3. press kana-key twice (or control+shift+R)

Actual Results:
Nothing happend.

Expected Results:
appear reconversion text candidates.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes

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.

Thank you for giving me an advice.

I have updated LibreOffice and checked its behavior. But it was same as before.

So, I turned status "UNCONFIRMED". And change version from "6.2.0.3 release" to "6.3.3.2 release".

Thanks.

Hi Shibata,
the version field is supposed to be the earliest affected version.

I take it the bug is still there since you set it to 6.4.0.3?

I'm resetting it

I'm adding it to the meta bug for Japanese CJK issues, as that hopefully raises visibility for others to confirm

If you can give step by step instruction on what keys I should hit on a qwerty-keyboard I could also try to replicate (from the input text step ;))

Ok :)

> I take it the bug is still there since you set it to 6.4.0.3?
Yes, It still remains.

> I'm resetting it
Ok.

Thank you.

1, Open System Preference on macOS
2, Add "Japanese" at "Input Source" in "Keyboard"
3, choose Japanese (icon of 「あ」) at input language in menu bar
4, Copy strings of "オフィス" and paste it into Writer.
5, Select pasted strings and control+shift+R and you will see nothing happened
6, If you do same thing by Textedit, JapaneseIME shows us a reconversion candidates.

Thanks.

Thanks! I can confirm it. JapaneseIME is not supported by LO currently.

That has also never been the case as far as I can tell in LO 3.3

OK. I can understand. I hope someday it will be working.
Thanks.
