Display while editing

Small caps were added to Draw/Impress in Bug 91932, but they seem to be broken. It will display small caps while editing, but as soon as you click out, it reverts to displaying regular caps.

Also, while displaying small caps while editing, the displayed text is much too small, but the cursor and selections are for the actual size, and don't match the displayed text.

Still present in

I confirm this bug on LO Version: Ubuntu 15.10

To access that feature:
Format menu >> Character... >> Font effects >> effects >> Small capitals

Well, I don't really know how bugs are managed ; when I try to list bugs in bugs list :

this bug don't appear ; but, I consider it as a major bug because I can't figure some workaround to work and it's a feature that I use very often, for exemple to fill a text form that I put under an image, to make a title and so on...

But, it seems that noone is in charge of this bug that don't appear except when I click on the link of an old received message.

So I fear if it will be corrected in the next release...

Caolán, *

for bug 91932, provides UI for setting case effects, but as noted here as soon as you leave a Text box with Small Caps formatting applied it shifts and just a Capitals effect results.

Lowercase and Title effect apply and are retained along with Capitals effect on leaving the Text box. So CaseMap is mostly correct, but for some reason the Small Caps does not remain intact.

Still present in current stable
Quite annoying that this makes it impossible to apply nice typography through SmallCaps in Impress :(

Is someone working on this bug ? It's a 2 years old bug and seems not to be hard to solve (I'm not angry and I know it's easier to say, rather to do).
Thanks :)
