Description Yifan Jiang 2011-05-19 03:23:00 UTC
Platform: SLED 11 sp1 i586
build info: Libreoffice 3.4 rc1


    1. Launch calc

    2. Input 1/2/2001 in a cell


    The 1/2 is autocorrected to small fraction style but obviously it is
    expected be a style of Date in the context.

    The problem is caused by autocorrection always getting advantage here when
    typing a key after '2'.

    It causes something like 'conflict' between choosing Date and fraction,
    and become a more ditinguishing issue when people want to type a date in
    Calc cell.

[Extra Information]

    The issue appears since replacement table containing 1/2, 1/4, 3/4 (or
    even more in the future) there mapping to small fraction text.

    It could be a better choice to put the fraction autocorrection as a
    checkbox instead of a replacement mapping, and checked off by default in
