Description didi 2012-12-07 13:52:51 UTC
Problem description: 
When the text language is French (France), with the option "Add non breaking space before specific punctuation marks in French text" enabled, spaces before exclamation and question marks located before a bracket ((, ), [, ], { or }) are automatically deleted.

Steps to reproduce:
1. enable option "Add non breaking space before specific punctuation marks in French text" in a text set to French (France)
2. type "blah !)", "blah!)" or any combination of an exclamation/question mark and a bracket of any type ((, ), [, ], { or }) located directly after it.

Current behavior:
The text is modified as following:
blah !) => blah!)
blah!) => blah!)
blah !] => blah!]
and so on...

Expected behavior:
The text should be modified as following:
blah !) => blah !)
blah!) => blah !)
blah !] => blah !]

In fact, non-breaking space disappears on typing almost any printing character right after the punctuation mark (excluding other punctuation marks, spaces, CR...)
blah ;blah --> blah;blah (right, this one is no frequent use :))

Dear didi,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
