Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118598] New: correct heterogeneous text
Date Sat, 12 Nov 2011 23:58:08 GMT

             Bug #: 118598
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: correct heterogeneous text
    Classification: Application
           Product: Spreadsheet
           Version: version58
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: editing

re issue 32636: I agree that it's 'invalid'.
However, I suggest an enhancement: when heterogeneous text is pasted, OO should
correct it, maybe with a warning (eg, 'Change font to Arial 12?'), to avoid
ulterior edit problems.
'Heterogeneous text' is apparently common: a short string I pasted from a
government form contained 2 different fonts: Helvetica and Helvetica bold.
Because they were unknown, Calc displayed them as Arial and (misleadingly) so
identified the font --so that the problem (I could not change the colour) was
well hidden. (The real fonts were named only when the text was scanned in edit
