Description László Németh 2013-08-22 12:37:51 UTC
Problem: Default autocorrect setting "Automatic *bold* and _underline_ changes the character format, but it doesn't disable the bold or underline character formatting after the second *, or _. Workaround: pressing Ctrl-B/Ctrl-U fix this autocorrection in the actual document.

Test case:

1. Open a new empty document in Writer.
2. Type

*bold* and _underline_ text

The word "text" in the result bold and underlined instead of normal text, see the attached screenshot.

Comment 2 László Németh 2013-08-22 13:02:27 UTC
NOTE: After a single Ctrl-B/Ctrl-U in the document this autocorrection will work well, so it is a problem of the initial state.

that one is already fixed, just not in 3.6...
