Description John Smith 2012-11-28 21:49:45 UTC
Problem description: When using the Spelling and Grammar dialog box to correct an error by using the AutoCorrect button, the control fails to fully execute the function.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In a new document with text entered containing a spelling error, select the Spelling and Grammar button (or F7)from the Standard toolbar.
2. Select a replacement word in the suggestions pane of the dialog box.
3. Select the AutoCorrect button.

Current behavior:The word pair is entered into the Replace table in the AutoCorrect list as it should be. The word is not replaced in the document with the selected word.A Change button has to be selected.

Expected behavior: The word in the document should be replaced by the selected word without further action.

Operating System: Windows XP
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2013-04-15 20:11:05 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Currently the result is that you choose AUTOCORRECT in the SPELLING AND GRAMMAR dialogue box and apparently nothing happens unless you choose afterwards CHANGE to correct that word.  
But you will now find that word in the autocorrect list (go to the menu TOOLS -> AUTOCORRECT OPTIONS -> tab REPLACE).

I agree that "Always correct" should logically also correct as highlighted.

Note: "Autocorrect" = "Always correct"

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
