Hello, and thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

I can confirm that selecting georgian text, then using any of the "Format -> Change Case" functions does nothing to the letters although all are present in the selected font.

Please let us know if this is the issue you meant. If not, please try to describe the issue a little more thorough. I'm setting this to NEEDINFO for now, please revert back to UNCONFIRMED once you have commented.

Yes, this is what I mean, I put a pictune of my Libre Office as you can see I added the function change Upper Lower directly in main toolbar !!!

I don't like to use Georgian Greek minuscule because some letter look like butt, so pro respect of my soul & virtue, I use capital !!! I also asked to Firefox Mozilla, to add an option in setting to set force the text of any web page to be displayed in "capital" !!!

And when testing, I constated that Georgian and some Greek letter not varg !!!

Kanth you...

Writer doc for testing Georgian

Reproduceable on all versions down to LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3, it's the oldest version I tested. Probably inherited from Apache OpenOffice, since OO 4.1.2 has the same issue.

Hot to reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Press Ctrl+A
3. "Format -> Change Case -> [use any function]"
4. The georgian text remains unchanged

Setting the status to NEW. I'll also tweak the summary a little.

Dear nemzag,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
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) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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
