Description Nick Levinson 2015-05-09 20:50:08 UTC
The spelling check system relies on word boundaries to decide what to check.

The following identify only what comes after the double-hyphen as a word to be checked:

do-nothing-today--do-something-today.htm identifies only do-something-today.htm

do-something-today--do-nothing-today.htm identifies only do-nothing-today.htm

Since the spell-check is apparently designed to check filenames, some of which use double-hyphens, whether a double-hyphen should exclude part of a filename should be reconsidered.

If a newer Writer version has solved this, that's good enough.

I'm guessing my hardware.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
