Description Urmas 2014-06-12 23:23:02 UTC
If there is several spaces between style definition and style name in RTF style table, the imported style name will have extra spaces in the beginning.
Word imports those normally.
Comment 1 Marina Latini (SUSE) 2014-07-23 11:08:01 UTC
Can you explain the steps for reproduce the problem?
Comment 2 Urmas 2014-07-23 11:52:23 UTC
Created attachment 103332 [details]
Comment 3 Marina Latini (SUSE) 2014-07-23 17:21:54 UTC
I can't reproduce the problem on LibO:
* Version:
* Build ID: 4ca819b204e6c93c4b4e20b191100aa248b8ff23
* TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-07-22_23:53:50
* OS: Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64

Can you provide a step by step procedure? Can you specify your system and your LibreOffice version?

Your attachment 103332 [details] has a "test" style with one blank space at the beginning but I can't create a second one with the same problem.
Comment 4 Urmas 2014-07-23 17:34:15 UTC
> has a "test" style with one blank space at the beginning

So you can reproduce it.

> So you can reproduce it.

Opening your file I can see the test style with one blank space at the beginning but I can't create this kind of style.
Comment 6 tommy27 2014-07-24 09:19:18 UTC
I'm reverting status to NEEDINFO since we need exact step-by-step procedure to exactly reproduce your bug.

also give details about O/S and other stuff like asked by Marina
Comment 7 tommy27 2014-07-24 09:41:49 UTC
also tell if the issue was present or not in previous LibO release or if it's specific to 4.4.x master branch
Comment 8 Urmas 2014-07-24 11:08:03 UTC
Confirming as per Comment 3.
The bug is about opening RTF files, as evident per Comment 1.
This bug is not in OpenOffice.
Comment 9 Marina Latini (SUSE) 2014-07-24 12:23:01 UTC
Hi Urmas,
Your attachment 103332 [details] has a buggy style name but I can create a new one style with the same behaviour.
Please, can you write a step by step procedure to create a new buggy style?
Which LibreOffice version are you using? 
I'm testing on Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 and I see your "test" style but I can't create a new one with blank space at the beginning. 
Are you testing on Windows or Mac?

Comment 11 tommy27 2014-07-24 12:42:36 UTC
besides being rude with a lady, would you please reply to the simple question about you O/S that has been already asked to you 3 times?
Comment 12 Marina Latini (SUSE) 2014-07-24 16:16:14 UTC
this is the source code of your rtf file:
{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1251\deff0\deflang1049{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Calibri;}}
{\stylesheet{\s0  Test;}}
\viewkind4\uc1\pard\s0\slmult1\lang9\f0\fs22 Hello world!\par

Reading the code, it seems to be a "handmade" document.
In any case, LibreOffice add the extra blank space at the beginning of the style name.

I can't test with MS Office but AOO trims the extra blank spaces.
AOO version:
* AOO411m3(Build:9772) - Rev. 1611634
* 2014-07-18 15:06 - Linux x86_64

All the tested (LibO's) versions have the same behaviour (extra spaces not trimmed):

* Version:
* Build ID: 3fdd4f069d5436cf39708004af7fda8175fbc4c2
* TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-07-09_02:51:53

@Miklós: what's the right behaviour?
Comment 13 Miklos Vajna 2014-08-29 15:38:18 UTC
Word also strips the whitespace around the style name, so we should, too.
