Description Luis Fernandes 2022-09-07 22:18:07 UTC
The autocomplete function writes the suggested word in text without previous press the selected key to it. This problem appears when we unselect the "show as suggestion" option, in Autocorrection menu. After showing part of the word suggestion, LibreOffice inserts the full word, even when we don't press the selected key to accpet the suggestion.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mark the "Complete words" option in Autocorrection menu; unmark "show as suggestion"
2. In a blank page, start to write a word wich is in "collected words" list;
3. Observe that the part of the word is shown after the cursor; don't press the "accept key" to accept the suggested word; just continue to type the word.

Actual Results:
Even you do not press the accept key (in my case, the "right" key), the system puts the suggested word in the text, so, as I continue to type, the full word gets corrupted.

Expected Results:
The suggested word should had appear only as a suggestion and shouldn't enter in the text if I don't press the "aceept key" or if I continue typing a word wich is different than the suggested word.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I tried to install this version in two different machines, with the same result.
The problem doesn't appear when you mark "show as suggestion" option.
