Description Kevin Suo 2014-06-25 07:11:16 UTC

This bug was initially report in the Chinese LibreOffice discussion forum:

In Asian Phonetic Guide, after set the phonetic text (注音) and hit "Apply", phonetic texts are not applied to the target chars immediately. It would be applied if you minimize and then maximize the main window.

1. Make sure you enabled CJK option in Tools-Options settings.
2. New Writer, input (or copy and paste) the Chinese chars "中 国" (please note: there is a space between the two chars)
3. Select the two chars, then go to "Format - Asian Phonetic Guide", set "zhong" and "guo" for each of the two chars, respectively.
4. Hit "Apply".

Current Behaviour:
Phonetic is not applied to the target chars immediately at step 4.
However, when you minimize and then maximize the libreoffice window, phonetic will show up.

Phonetic should be applied to the target chars immediately at step 4 when you hit "Apply".

(This bug behaviour does not happen with Apache OpenOffice 4.1.0.)

OS: Windows XP SP3
"博雅 (179746686)" in the Chinese QQ chatroom confirms that he can reproduce in win7 LO4.1.6.

To reproduce, you don't need to be in Chinese UI. English UI is OK to reproduce this bug behaviour.

How Step 3 Looks

Confirmed on Linux Mint in 3.6.7, 4.2.4, and 4.3.0. It works correctly in 3.3.0. It is a simple redraw issue as alt+tab twice fixes it.

on Linux, can reproduce this on 4.1.6 and master

it's quite annoying though, sometimes it works and sometimes not?

it apparently happens even back in 3.6.7 although less often...

Unfortunately it seems impossible to reproduce this reliably towards the beginning of the 43all bibisect repository. Clearly the bug is there, but the fact that it can't be reproduced on demand means that an accurate bibisect result can't be achieved
