I can verify this behavior, tested using LibreOffice Version: 
Build ID: 40b2d7fde7e8d2d7bc5a449dc65df4d08a7dd38

Also reproducible using LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 53fd80e80f44edd735c18dbc5b6cde811e0a15c)
TinderBox: MacOSX TDF Release, Branch:libreoffice-4-0, Time: 2013-01-31_11:01:36

After editing the formula, all Russian symbols are gone or replaced by a " or other symbols.

Marking as critical low.
Critical: loss of data
Low: didn't saw this problem already, only reproducible in this case

Kind regards,

It's not a regression. I checked it in LibreOffice 3.5, and it is also wrong there. It is even wrong in MS Word 2010. The problem is, I think, that equations use Times New Roman Cyr font, which is not present on modern operating systems.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

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 (4.4.2 or later)

   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
 If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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
