Description jlbraga 2015-04-07 22:19:37 UTC
Hi. When I apply the the autocorrect to a text in order to correct it all at once, it happens that all the text/paragraph/linespace formatting is lost, getting back to default.
As an example, I have a text that is in Calibri Light size 10, with space between lines and paragraphs as normal and equal for both, and when I apply autocorrect to the text, it sets the text to Times New Roman size 12, with extra space between paragraphs.
The autocorrect shouldn't affect the formatting options...

Can you reproduce it repeatable with a new WRITER document?  If yes, can you please give more information about the different single steps to reproduce it.  I couldn't reproduce it with LO 4.4.1.2, Win 8.1.

I have LO 4.4.1.2 Portuguese Version, and Windows 7 Home Edition. This happens in all new "writer" documents I open.

First write a lot of text in Calibri Light size 10, then select it all, right-click it and select paragraph. Set all the space between the paragraphs and lines to the minimum possible (0, simple, etc.). Then select Format in the upper bar, Autocorrection, then Apply. The formatting is then lost.

Even worse: I discovered that if a paragraph starts with a speech dash (alt+0151), the autocorrection transforms it into a bullet black circle and the paragraph becomes as it was on a list.

Also, I noticed that if you change the text formatting in the list on the left of the font list, the formatting also changes. The font, for instance, becomes Liberation Serif...

Ah, now I understand what you mean, thank you very much.

Reproducible with LO 4.4.1.2, Win 8.1.  
If you select FORMAT -> AUTOCORRECT -> APPLY the font is automatically changed to the Text Body specs (go to the Sidebar -> STYLES AND FORMATTING -> PARAGRAPH STYLES -> Text Body).  
I agree there should be an option that the font is not changed, but I could not find it.  In this case it could be from my point of view some kind of an enhancement request?

So let's make this into an enhancement request

-> Adjusted Summary
-> Severity: enhancement

Probably need to figure out why the [M] modify AutoCorrect options only apply the Default style, bug 59034, as that would need to be fixed before this can be sorted.
