Hello Mr. Pelnaver,

There's not much to say, it's just that those superscript don't get automatically formatted when I type them.

Alessandri Ceschini, thank you for providing the requested screencast. This problem is unreproducible in i386 & amd64 Xubuntu Raring, using default English layout.

+ Would you have any extensions installed? If so, which?
+ As well, if you change your layout to default English, would this allow you to perform the desired action?
+ Due to how you have upgraded from Precise, if you performed a complete uninstall, and reinstall of libreoffice, does this change anything?

Mr. Penalver, here's the answer to your questions:

+Only extension: presentation Minimizer but I think it's a default one since I didn't install it
+I did change the layout to English in the screencast, but to no avail.
+I tried uninstalling through Software Centre and then reinstalling but to no avail.

Alessandro Ceschini, could you please click Tools -> AutoCorrect Options... -> tab Localized Options and provide a screenshot of this window?

Mr. Pelnaver, is this what you were looking for?


Alessandro Ceschini, precisely.

Have you tried moving the folders .libreoffice and ~/.config/libreoffice, and then launching Writer to see if it changes anything?

There is no folder .libreoffice. As for ~/.config/libreoffice, moving it just gives me some errors while opening Writer but no changes as far as superscripts are concerned.
