Description Kribly Krably 2020-02-04 09:49:47 UTC
When inserting new formula in Writer document, the formula object appears not in place of current cursor position, as expected, and has wrong anchoring: "To Character" instead of "As Character".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new writer document;
2. Write something, e.g. "Lorem ". Leave text cursor AFTER this word;
3. Choose in main menu: Insert -> Object -> Formula;
4. Type something in formula editor, e.g. "2+2=4";
5. Press ESC to close formula editor;

Actual Results:
1. Formula object is BEFORE word "Lorem"
2. Formula object anchoring is "To Character"

Expected Results:
1. Formula object is AFTER word "Lorem"
2. Formula object anchoring is "As Character"

Reproducible: Always
