[Solved] Want to change how to insert Greek letters in 4.0

Postby jkljkl » Sat Dec 14, 2013 6:10 am

Hello,

just installed 4.0.1 and was unpleasantly surprised by the fact that now I have to type for example %Eta instead of %eta for a lower case eta. How can I switch back to the old behavior?

Thank you
stefan

PS
Or is it a bug, I cannot conceive a rationale for this mix up of upper and lower case mess. Here the new world:
%Alpha %Beta %Gamma %Delta %varepsilon %Zeta %Eta %Theta %jota %kappa %Lambda %my %ny %xi %omikron %pi %rho %varsigma %Sigma %Tau %ypsilon %varphi %Chi %Psi %Omega %vartheta %Phi %varpi %varrho %Epsilon

I get the lower case Greek letters with these symbols
%alpha %beta %gamma %delta %epsilon %zeta %eta %theta %iota %kappa %lambda %mu %nu %xi %omicron %pi %rho %sigma %tau %upsilon %phi %chi %psi %omega

Thank you for the quick reply and the hint.

I use and installed the german version:
"Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Win_x86_install_de.exe" (AOO401m5(Build:9714) - Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29 (Fr, 20 Sep 2013)) which shows the above mentioned behavior.
I made a parallel installation with:
"Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.1_Win_x86_install_en-GB.exe" (AOO401m5(Build:9714) - Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29 (Fr, 20 Sep 2013)) and there everything is fine.

So I will use the English version in future,
thank you again

You may try to write to the localization mailing list or to the German mailing list in order to contact the German translators.
