Description jonahmail1 2013-08-24 20:11:47 UTC
Maybe this is fixed for later versions but when I type ...(3 periods) in LO it rightly says it should an ellipsis in spell check but when I change it it inserts the ellipsis character and an extra period(here is the copied and paste, if you select it you'll see it's 2 separate characters: ….)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Type in three periods(...)
2. Spell check(guided)(I know this is unhelpful but my red underline spell check isnt working so I dont know if it's only with the guided spell check)
3. Click change and it makes it an ellipsis and a period

Current behavior: Spell checks to: ….

Expected behavior: I would think only an ellipsis would be expected …

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Thanks for submitting a bug report. Can you give me some additional information? Which spell check do you have? I have the option of Hunspell in Tools -> Options -> Language Selection -> Writing Aids, but you could also have another spell check or grammar check extension installed.

If the issue is with the extension, I can direct you to where to submit your bug report.

Thank you,

I just use the included hunspell program

Hmmm... When I type in three periods and run a spell check, it says nothing.

I typed in afsdfadsf ... kljljaafdkljsa

and it gives me interesting suggestions for those gibberish words, but nothing for the ellipsis.

Do you have any dictionaries installed, or any other extensions for grammar?

Marking as NEEDINFO as Brenda asked a couple good questions that we could use answers for. 

Please test again with or 4.3 rc and if you still have the same problem answer Brenda's questions and then mark the bug as UNCONFIRMED. Thanks
