Description Gustavo 2014-05-28 18:18:00 UTC
Estoy usando el lenguaje español de España, con configuracion regional Argentina.
Tengo un teclado de 104 teclas correctamente configurado y los tildes o acentos funcionan bien en el sistema y otras aplicaciones.

En Libre office, con un documento abierto, los acentos funcionan correctamente.

Si abro un segundo documento o aplicación de la suite, los acentos sólo funcionan en esa nueva instancia, perdiendo la posibilidad de escribir nuevos acentos en la anterior instancia.

Si abro un tercer documento, los acentos funcionan en ese, y en los que tuviera abiertos de la misma aplicación.

Si los 3 documentos son de la misma aplicación, solo funcionan en la última instancia abierta.

No depende del tipo de archivo (xls = ods) sino del cambio entre aplicaciones de la suite.

Kubuntu 14.04
KDElibs: 4.13.0
Qt: 4.8.6
Kernel: 3.13.0-24-generic 64 bits
libreoffice 4.2.3-rc3-0ubuntu1

Comment 3 Gustavo 2014-05-28 19:52:08 UTC
My apologies, here translated. 
I'm using the Spanish language, regional settings Argentina.
I have a 104-key keyboard properly configured.
The display accents work well in the system and other applications.

Libre office, with a document open, accents work correctly.

If I open a second document or application suite, accents only work on the new instance, losing the ability to write new accents in the previous instance.

If I open a third document, accents work on that, and that had opened in the same application.

If the 3 documents are of the same application, only work on the last open instance.

Not depend on the file type (xls = ods).

And is this a new problem? (thanks for the translation :) )
Comment 5 Gustavo 2014-05-28 20:42:43 UTC
I do not know if the problem arose from the upgrade of kubuntu (13.10 to 14.04) or libreoffice 4.3.2.
Both were almost simultaneous. 

Before upgrading to Trusty, I downloaded and installed manually LibO.

Now I deleted the old LibO, and installed from Muon Discover, to use the system updates.

(thanks google translator) :)

Usually use VMware.
There is no problem for me to do a clean install of kubuntu 14.04 and Libo, to test whether this failure is unknown to you (apart from pretty crazy)
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2015-01-21 06:46:59 UTC
No problem with accented characters here on Kubuntu 14.10 64-bit,
LibO Version:
Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)

Gustavo: how is your current situation? Tried with a new install etc.?

My apologies for not updating the status of this error.
I changed my PC and desktop to MATE.
But in the former, with versions 4.4 and later, I have not had this problem.
I do not remember if the 4.3 versions the problem persisted.

Today with Ubuntu Mate and Libre Office all goes well
