Description soren.hein 2012-03-04 05:15:37 UTC
1. Create a new, empty Writer file.
2. Type a word in lower case (e.g. "caps").
3. Mark the word using Format -> Character, select Capitals under dropdown menu Effects.
4. Note that the word appears in capital letters now.
5. Safe as rtf file.
6. Close file.
7. Open file again.

The word is now in lower case.
The rtf file does contain the \caps directive, so it is written but somehow not used.
The same file reads properly in Word 2008 for Mac 12.3.2, for instance.

I reproduce the bug with the master (LibreOffice 3.6.0alpha0+ Build ID: 08ba87c-49d3d39-e67b1bf-879ce36-638d9c) under Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64.

Miklos: it's one for you, I guess. Please free to reassign if you can't handle this bug.

Best regards. JBF
