I confirm that under Win8.1 x64
in LibO 4.3.5 that option was enabled while in and following releases (including recent 5.1.0 daily builds) that option is disabled

I don't know if that was done on purpose or not.

should we call it a regression?
Comment 2 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2015-07-24 11:12:33 UTC
Sure – thanks for testing, Tommy.

With this patch + make postprocess + brand new profile, it works:

The problem is I don't see in the historic of the file why it was working before 4.4.0

Perhaps I'm on a wrong lead.

Julien, that patch looks okay to me.

This is not true. The default option for single quotes has always been disabled since the year 2002, which can easily be seen with git annotate. If you experienced differently it is because of a local configuration.

I suspect there is some reason the single quote replacement is disabled while the double quote replacement is not, but I don't know which, maybe related to apostrophe uses.

I suggest to resolve this as NOTABUG.
Comment 7 Regina Henschel 2015-08-04 10:33:16 UTC
Yes it was disabled in OpenOffice because of problems, including Apostrophe. There had been discussions on mailing lists. Read issues https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=5839 and https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=22271 and its duplicates.

I support NOTABUG.
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2015-08-04 12:10:14 UTC
Just for the record, I abandonned the patch.

I had found an interesting location too http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/editeng/source/misc/svxacorr.cxx#241 but since I had found the location of the patch, I hadn't dig more.
