The boxes for changing e.g. 1st to 1^st when typing are checked but the conversion does not happen.
Same here - it will not format ordinal number suffixes. This occurs whether using the debian install package or downloading thru the regular Ubuntu repos (i.e., synaptic on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). This bug is still present in the latest stable version; reported both on Windows andLinux (i.e., Debian). See thread at http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/3897#comment-19087 .
Still broken in 3.6.1
See #38242 as well.
I got told off for "toggling the version" whatever that jargon is supposed to mean, when I reported it in #38242, so I made out a new report....

John Farrar, don't worry, you don't need to open a separate report for a different version of the program. As long as the bug exists in newer versions, the bug can remain open. I do think the freedesktop bugzilla system ought to be more useable for most users, there is a lot of scope for confusion.
