only screenshot showing that it is really not working
Shortcut fn+f3 for inserting formula is not working for me (on my home PC I use Ubuntu 11.10 in Czech language and LibreOffice 18.104.22.168
Build:102 with Czech langpack).
On my working notebook (Ubuntu 11.10 in English and LibreOffice 22.214.171.124
also in English) this shortcut is working correctly.
Steps to reproduce:
1. open eg. new document in LibreOffice Writer with Czech langpack
2. write "fn"
3. press f3 key
4. appears message:"Automaticky text pro zkratku 'fn' nebyl nalezen" which means in English: "Automatic text for shortcut 'fn' was not found"
fn+f3 does not inserts formula
fn+f3 inserts formula

This bug looks like locale specific. Please, help to reproduce it.
I am able to reproduce it. If you look into the autotext using "Edit/Autotext..." or by pressing [Ctrl-F3] you see four autotext libraries:
but the are empty.
The related files are installed in /opt/libreoffice3.5/share/autotext/cs/*.bau
The *.bau files are zip archives. You could unzip them to see the content.
I compared the content with the working en/standard.bau. The main difference seems to be in META-INF/manifest.xml. It is almost empty in the "cs" version. It includes many entries in the "en" version.
So, the solution is to create correct manifest files in the cs/*.bau files.
Stefan, Michael, just by chance, do you know about any helper tool to create the .bau files? Or do we need to create the manifest files by hand?
Anyway, this is very nice easy hack, so marking it this way.
The last .bau files can be found at http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/extras/source/autotext/lang/cs
The manual solution is to unzip them, update the META-INF/manifest.xml files and zip them again.
You could take inspiration in the .bau files for other localizations.
You could try the result if you copy them to the installed system, restart LO and try try to edit or use the autotext.
Perhaps this commit helps http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=109209c4f1db04eccf02d283f9d4ce039418603b ?
Ondrej: If interested, daily builds are here:http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/
I can confirm that this issue still persists in 4.1.1 (Czech language, Ubuntu 13.04).
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.
see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details
It does not work in French too because the shortcut is localized. In French it is nf+F3 (Numérotation de Formule). If I switch back to the English/USA UI, then the shortcut becomes fn+F3.
To found the correct shortcut: menu Edit > AutoText and search in the list "Standard" the equivalent of "Formula Numbering".
For me it is not a bug.

In Czech, there are no items in the AutoText dialog (only a few empty categories), so it is indeed a bug.

Ok, so it is not a shortcut problem. Modified summary accordingly.

Fixed autotext libraries in cs version
Sorry fo being late in fixing this bug..
I corrected manifest files in autotext cs libraries. Also I deleted some useless CVS dirs and MANIFEST.MF files according to the http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=109209c4f1db04eccf02d283f9d4ce039418603b
Now, all the czech autotext working fine.
I create patch and push it to the gerrit for code review: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/9109/
Michal Horak committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#47800 Fixing manifest files in cs autotext libraries
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
the same siutuation is with Slovak Autotext. Could you, please, correct also that?
I confirm that Autotext works nicely for Czech language in 4.3 beta 1. Michal, thanks a lot for fixing!
I think this bug should be closed, or it should be changed to reflect that it persists in Slovak language only.
I reopen the bug and change the title because the same problem exists also in Greek language and seems to affect other languages also. There is no autotext, is totally empty so I can't use the formula numbering fn F3. Moreover in my installation I have both Greek and English languages installed and it is not working (is empty) for English too. I checked the folder /share/autotext/ and all the language subdirs there are empty. Also I am missing the en-US/ subfolder, which suggests that the installation file is missing the /share/autotext/en-US/ folder. I have a clean install.

Which means it is a different bug. Closing again.

Still most of the languages lack the autotext features as seen also from comment 13. So I believe it should be reopened.
Another better solution could be, a basic thing like inserting a formula and having it numbered automatically (what fn+F3 does), to get build in with a language agnostic manner.
I suggest to open a new bug and mention this one there if needed.
It will be much more motivating for developers to work on it. You know. One feels happy when some work is done and the related bug can be marked as fixed. On the other hand, it is a bit frustrating, when a bug is repeatedly reopened "only" because of some similar problems that are still there. Then it is like getting rid of a chewing gum from your clothes :-)
