Description vladspellbinder 2022-04-27 04:39:37 UTC
Please add in an option to pick where the text insertion point position after after correcting a word via right-click -> select correction. Right now the cursor jumps to the FRONT of the word I just corrected while I would like for it to go BEHIND it as this is what I am accustomed to from other places and it throws me every single time in Writer.
I'm not sure if this is done in other Libraoffice programs as I tend to only use Writer and Calc.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Misspell any word
3. Right click and select any correction option
4. Find that the text insertion point is now at the front of the corrected word instead of behind it.

Actual Results:
Get cursor in front of word corrected.

Expected Results:
Would like cursor after word corrected.

Reproducible: Always

I confirm the behaviour with

Not sure, if an option is needed, but I think cursor right of the corrected word should be the default behaviour
