Description Yury 2013-08-05 08:11:45 UTC
Created attachment 83644 [details]
formula file showing the problem

In formula/equation editor, quoting the text changes text alignment as well, which is unexpected and wrong behaviour.

Example file (formula) attached. You may try with the source of the formula:

E = "N"
{ exp left[ 1 over {k_B T} right]  − 1 }

Here N is aligned to the left. Removing the double quotes from around N changes alignment to (correct) center.

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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.4.1 or 5.3.6  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

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)


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";
