Description Jorge Gustavo Rocha 2020-03-27 09:40:53 UTC
I use my own language in LibreOffice and it works great.

But in Calc, to print a spreadsheet, I would like to use custom headers and footer.

On the dialogue, I'm not able to input accented characters. But I'm able to aste a string with accented characters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc
2. Format → Page
3. Header
4. Enter a custom header with accented characters, like: Informática. The accent is lost

Actual Results:
The accented character is replaced by the corresponding non accented character

Expected Results:
The text as typed by the user

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
It works on the main spreadsheet interface, Only in these dialogues the accented characters are not typed correctly.

Calc page headers dialog

This print screen shows the dialogue filled with accented characters. It is only possible with copy and paste from another editor. These accented characters, as displayed, can not be typed directly on the dialogue.

I can confirm the bug on Fedora, but for me it is possible to enter accented characters with dedicated keys but not with a modifier key or compose key.

Already in Linux 6.3 bibisect repo (oldest commits crash with Format - Page, though). Not seen in 50max repo.
Comment 5 Jorge Gustavo Rocha 2020-08-09 22:01:29 UTC
