Description Urmas 2011-08-17 19:27:23 UTC
Apply sentence case to text: "...ONE ...TWO THREE"

Result: "...ONE ...TWO Three"
Expected: "...One ...two three"

Confirmed for LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:103) on OpenSuse Linux.

This is likely because Libreoffice does not recognize the ellipsis character "..." and interprets them as three period marks. So the setences are divided into . | . | .ONE | . | . | . | TWO THREE. TWO THREE is in the last sentence, and since LO does not autocorrect words in all capital cases, the result you see happens.

Solution: have LO writer recognize ellipsis is not the same as the period, which marks the sentence.

I removed bug 41189 from the See Also field, because that issue seems completely unrelated to this one.

I added bug 116718 to See Also, because both that one and this one are a matter of ICU sentence break rules.
