Description Rpnpif 2011-06-25 05:30:39 UTC
To reproduce this issue :

1. Open LibreOffice Draw.
2. Draw a rectangle (or other form.
4. Select this form (but not enter in the form).
5. Type é, à OR some other character as °.
The typed character is replaced by a rectangle or another character followed by a space. A backspace makes fixing.

This issue exists in all release of Libreoffice or OpenOffice (not tested in 3.4).

[Reproducible] with Daily Build nearby "LibreOffice 3.4.1RC1  - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:101)]"
Also affected: Fontwork, pictures (.png)

Strange, no problem for shapes inserted in WRITER and CALC

Indeed very old bug, also visible in OOo 1.1.4, 3.1. obsolete 3.4-dev 

Might be related to <http://openoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=34273>?

Reduced Importance because of simple workaround.

Apologies for not having gotten around fixing this bug yet; unfortunately in future I'll have even less time at my disposal for this, so I'm freeing up ownership for other volunteers to take over.

Very very old (+10?) annoying bug still present in 5.1.2.2.

If the wrong character is not corrected in the ODG document, It persist an arrow instead of é. Charset issue?

Comment 13 Rpnpif 2017-12-06 11:09:43 UTC
The first character which is represented with a rectangular (as unknown font are), is in the WenQuanYi Micro Hei font and the other are in Liberation Sans.

I has never used in any document the WenQuanYi Micro Hei font, which although is present in my system but Liberation Sans is my default font.
