Description Hossein 2022-08-20 09:34:16 UTC
On Windows, the default shortcut for ZWNJ is ctrl+shift+2. To use that, one should activate Persian keyboard layout, and then press this key combination.

Zero-width non-joiner

This does not work on LibreOffice Calc. At the same time, typing ZWNJ using this key combination is possible in Notepad.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc
2. Activate Persian keyboard layout
2. Type می then ctrl+shift+2 and then شود

Actual Results:
After pressing ctrl+shift+2, the selected cell comes out of the editing mode, and the rest of the word that is typed is overwritten on the previous text.

Expected Results:
ZWNJ should be inserted in the document. For example, if you type می then ZWNJ and then شود you should get می‌شود, but you will get شود because the previous part is overwritten.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
