Description Paolo Benvenuto 2013-04-24 14:00:00 UTC
Reproduce it in writer/calc/sheet/etc.:

- open a document and write somewhere: ASDF ASDF ASDF ASDF ASDF ASDF ASDF
- select only one the words
- format -> Change case -> Sentence case => you should get only the selected word changed, but you get all the paragraph changed.
Comment 1 Paolo Benvenuto 2013-04-24 14:00:48 UTC
I think it's a regression in 4.0 or 4.0.1/2, it wasn't present in 3.x
Comment 2 Paolo Benvenuto 2013-04-24 14:03:09 UTC
actually the sentence is affected, not the paragraph
Comment 3 QA Administrators 2015-03-04 02:24:08 UTC Comment hidden (obsolete)
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2015-03-24 17:26:01 UTC
Reproduced, already in 3.3 so no regression.
