Font style toggle buttons do not work correctly

Bug #160686 reported by JBLingan on 2007-11-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The problem occurs using 2.3 word processing module.

In the following steps use CTRL+B to toggle the Bold font style where indicated by [CTR+B]. To reproduce this problem it is IMPORTANT that you DO NOT PRESS ENTER. The problem occurs when trying to toggle the Bold effect on and off within an unbroken sentence.

BEGIN WITH A NEW DOCUMENT and type the following sentence pressing [CTRL+B] where indicated:

[CTRL+B]This will appear Bold; [CTRL+B]This will appear normal; [CTRL+B]This should be Bold but is not.

Note that prior to typing anything, the Bold, Italic, and Underline toggles function normally. Apparently, the failure occurs when the feature is called the second time. This is probably a minor bug involving a flag. I have not looked at the source code so I'm just guessing. I hope you find it--this is VERY ANNOYING.
