Summary0003740: Story editor losing accented characters
DescriptionI find that when I work in Story Editor, and I start a sentence with a capital letter which is one of the Polish accented characters, it will be lost
when I close the story editor. In such a case I need to double click the text frame and type that letter again. It is OK then. But typing it in story editor will mean losing this character each and every time.
Steps To ReproducePress T, draw a text frame, Ctrl-Y, type capital Polish Ł or Ś, then close the story editor. The letter will be gone.
TagsNo tags attached.

confirmed with on winXP (fine on linux)

On windows 2000 it's even worse, since all accented capital letters get lost after "update text frame and exit" from the Story Editor (see the uploaded screen shot)

gonna be a bit hard for me to type polish characters, all i can say is that when using "insert special chars" in story editor inserting the text from error.png works as expected

when switching to polish keyboard, typing lower case accented polish characters works also here. don't know how and if upper case accented characters can be directly typed with keyboard

To insert polish upper case characters with keyboard:

- switch to PL keyboard

jghali: i've checked it once again on winxp, it's quite funny. It will only happen, if you _type_ the Polish upper case chars (Aogonek, Lstroke, etc.).

It won't happen, if you e.g. paste the uploaded pl sample text into the story editor and update the text frame.

thanks. copy-pasting the sample text works here. The only way to reproduce the bug seems to type directly the characters on keyboard.

found, i had already encountered a similar bug at same place in SEditor::keyPressEvent(). The fact that this bug appear only on Windows is due to little differences in qt with keyboard management.

Patch has been commited in both branch (1.3.x and 1.3.3.x). Are there others combination of special keys used for typing polish characters?

Let's see:

SHIFT+ALTGR+S //Sacute (hope, this is the proper entity)
SHIFT+ALTGR+Z //Z with a dote above it, z key position as on QWERTY keyboard

The same as above, but without the SHIFT key

That's all, I think
