Calc transforms fractions (1/2, 1/4, 3/4) to unicode special characters without the possibility to disable it.
I haven't those items in the autocorrection table, and there isn't any "autocorrect fractions" or equivalent checkbox in the autocorrect options
Hi @Paolo, thanks for reporting.
1/2 it's a formula, so you need to begin it with an equal = or a sign + -, in other case it is treated as text. Also depending on the locale can be treated as date.
it's not a matter of formula, the autocorrections happens even if I enter "sunday 1/4)"
@Paolo: Isn't this something to limit with date acceptance patterns. See Tools>Options>Language settings>Languages.. ?
It's not a matter of dates; if it were so it would happen that 3/4 become 03/04/2015 or something similar.
The bug is about 3/4 becoming ¾.

The option to turn off replacement table
This misfeature is controlled by a checkbox in the auto completion, and it can be disabled, but it should be disabled by default.
this is a duplicate of Bug 71974 and it's caused by autocorrect collisions.
a workaround to resolve this issue is described here:
