Description Jürgen Kirsten 2020-03-23 22:47:34 UTC
In LibreOffice in the options of the Auto-Correction section there is the possibility to replace single quotation marks at the beginning and at the end of the word automatically under Localized Options.
Now there is the circumstance in German language that we have words that have an apostrophe in the middle of the word. For example "mach's gut". The correct spelling is with the right single quotation mark. Code 8217.
LibreOffice replaces my apostrophe already after I have written mach' in a left single quotation mark Code 8216. What is o.K. for quotation mark but not for Apostrophe. LibreOffice does not wait if the apostrophe is really at the end of the word. The replacement should only happen when the apostrophe is actually at the end of the word.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a LibreOffice Document
2. Change the Language in German(Germany)
3. write the Word : mach'
4. write the word complete with "s"

Actual Results:
LO change the apostrophe in a quotation mark

Expected Results:
LibreOffice must wait if the word really ends with an apostrophe. Only then it may replace it with a single quote.

Reproducible: Always
