Description Pierre Farrugia 2012-03-02 06:22:26 UTC

When I write bold{"r"}_{i} to obtain a bold "r" and an non-bold but italic subscript i I get that the subscript i is also set to bold. The problem occurs both in Writer as well as in Math.

I am using Windows XP 

Kind regards,

I can confirm the bug is still present in LibreOffice Writer Version There appeared to be no change in its occurrence.

I am currently running on Windows 7.

Thank you.

You can move the bold into the bracket with the "r":  {bold"r"}_{i}
You could also add brackets:  {bold{"r"}}_{i}
Or you could add another attribute:  bold{"r"}_nbold{i}
