Description sdc.blanco 2021-01-29 01:19:26 UTC
According to https://help.libreoffice.org/7.2/en-US/text/shared/01/06040100.html

Automatic *bold*, /italic/, -strikeout- and _underline_

Automatically applies bold, italic, strikethrough or underline formatting to text enclosed by asterisks (*), slashes (/), hyphens (-), and underscores (_), respectively. These characters disappear after the formatting is applied.

0. Tools > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options - Options tab
   uncheck all [T] and [M] fields, except for 
   "Capitalize first letter of every sentence"

For [M]
1. Use "Default Paragraph Style" for all tests (because does not work with other PS).

2. Tools > AutoCorrect > While Typing (disabled)

3. Mark-up -- following "help" 

4. Tools > AutoCorrect > Apply

Actual result:  

bold and underline (almost OK), but the last character is not formatted.

italic and strikethrough do not work.

For [T]

1. Tools > AutoCorrect > While Typing (enabled)
2. mark-up - following "help"

Actual result:

bold and underline worked as described
italic and strikethrough did not work

worked for the 3 or 4 different PS that I tried (unexpected, but good)
Comment 1 sdc.blanco 2021-01-29 01:22:15 UTC
Correction to step 0 in comment 0:  The only selected option should be:
   Automatic *bold*, /italic/, -strikeout- and _underline_
Comment 2 BogdanB 2021-01-29 22:04:36 UTC
I unchecked everything except that line and everything works normal for all 4.

Tested in

Comment 3 BogdanB 2021-01-29 22:09:06 UTC
I let all 2 options activated T and M for that 4 options. In the same time, and this way is working well.
Comment 4 sdc.blanco 2021-01-30 12:12:37 UTC
Have attempted again -- now in Safe Mode -- 


Only [T) and [M] options enabled for "Automatic *bold*, /italic/, -strikeout- and _underline_"  in AutoCorrect Options (all others unchecked)

Make sure to "Apply" only on Default PS.

1.  No problems with "While Typing"  [T]   
    (and works with all kinds of PS)

2.  Two problems with manual (Tools > AutoCorrect > Apply) [M]

  a.  /italic/ does not work
  b.  -strikethrough- does not work
      (no problems with *bold* or _underline_)

Is it a Windows only problem?

(In reply to sdc.blanco from comment #4)

Confirm findings 1. & 2.

> Is it a Windows only problem?

No, Fedora 33 as VM has exact issue.

Created attachment 169307 [details]
test document

Simple one line tests of each "markdown" type.

Select each in turn and apply: Tools -> Autocorrect -> Apply
Comment 7 sdc.blanco 2021-01-30 16:24:46 UTC


(interesting function name, given that it only seems to work with Weight and Underl, even though Posture and Strikeout are also included)
Comment 8 V Stuart Foote 2021-01-30 16:58:43 UTC
Wait this is a duplicate of bug 117651, the italic (/) and strikethrough (-) were added to master against 5.4.0. But as Mike K points out in dupe, looks to have an implementation error.
