branch 2001-10-16 Win2k Summary: Formatting text as bold or italic duplicates selected text and deposits it, unformatted, at the end of the selection. Weird. I was in Composer and I selected text which I then hit ctrl+i to set it to italics, and the weirdest thing happened. My selection "foobar" became "foobarfoobar" with the first foobar in italics. I tried the same thing with bold and it produced the same result. More specific steps: 1. Launch a blank page in Composer 2. start typing a sentence (in my scenario, I had my text in blockquotes, moved over two ticks with the ==> button) 3. select the last word in your sample sentence 4. Use ctrl+i to set to italics Result: duplicate Expected Result: duh!
I tried reproducing this: 1) new blank page 2) enable blockquote mode(tried Normal mode also) 3) type a sentence 4) select last word in sentence 5) Ctrl-I to italicize I don't see a duplicated word. works fine for me.. I"m using Win 98 but that shouldn't matter. Kevin, can you reproduce your problem everytime? or was it something that only happened once?
I can't reproduce this either. Kevin which branch build were you using? In any case this sounds like bug 98544 (which is a dup of a bug that doesn't sound related, but is) which was fixed on the TRUNK, but was deemed too risky to land on the 0.9.2 or 0.9.4 branch. Kevin, if you see this problem in the TRUNK or can give us updated steps on how to reproduce this, please reopen. It would be helpful to see what exactly the content was you had in the window at the time this happened. Also knowing things like if the sentence you said to type was supposed to wrap or not might help.
