Description Fabio Maione 2012-12-07 08:30:19 UTC
Using alphabetical index, when you add a voice to index starting from selected text, sometimes Writer will use the whole text to mark index reference (say: background grayed text) sometimes it will mark a little gray background on the half of the first letter of the referencing text.
I tried to refine when it happens, but with no luck.

Thanks for reporting.

I can reproduce this behavior.

How to reproduce (unless the fact there are other bugs related to this Index type):

* Download & open Attachment 62009 [details]
* Scroll to page 2

Behavior: the word 'test' in the frame will be partially highlighted.

Kind regards,

I could not reproduce from scratch with these Jorendc's steps from the document:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new document and type test followed by an enter
2. Insert Indexes and Tables
3. Select type: Alphabetical Index
4. keep for entire document
5. mark Concordance file and select NEW
6. save the file
7. In search term enter: Test
8. In Alternative entry enter: Test
9. Match case and Word only leave both to no
10. Confirm all opening windows by OK

Current behavior: nothing appears in Index

Expected behavior: Entry Test should appear in Index

In my experiment, Test appears in the index.
Closing as WFM.
