Description tobias 2020-05-12 19:25:21 UTC
I want to write a sentence containing an apostrophe

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write sentence containing apostrophe (input U+0027)
2. "Tobias' Fehlermeldung"

Actual Results:
U+0027 gets replaced with U+2018
"Tobias‘ Fehlermeldung"

Expected Results:
U+0027 should get replaced with U+2019
"Tobias’ Fehlermeldung"

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Build-ID: 1:6.4.2-0ubuntu3
CPU-Threads: 8; BS: Linux 5.4; UI-Render: GL; VCL: kf5; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); UI-Sprache: de-DE
Calc: threaded

Setting: Extras/Autokorrektur/Autokorrektur-Optionen Tab: "Gebietsschemaabhängige Optionen" Setting "Einfache Anführungszeichen" "Ersetzen" activated. Turning this off gives me the expected apostrophe replacement. But then I don't get the single quotation marks anymore …
