Description sdc.blanco 2021-01-28 00:51:48 UTC
1.  The "Replace Dashes" section of:  https://help.libreoffice.org/7.2/en-US/text/shared/01/06040100.html gives a table of what dash replacements should occur.

2.  Using Tools > AutoCorrect > Apply, two of items in the table do not work.

A--B (A, minus, minus, B)
A --B (A, space, minus, minus, B)

3.  The others work, and all work if tested with "While Typing"

Test conducted as follows:

1. Tools > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options - Options tab
   uncheck all [T] fields.  Uncheck all [M] fields, except for 
   "Replace dashes"

2. Make sure to work in Default Paragraph Style

3. Enter the items in the table in a New Document.

4. Tools > AutoCorrect > Apply

Question:  Is the Help page wrong (and should be changed)?  Or is this an implementation problem?
