I've been using LibreOffice on Ubuntu 10.04 for many months. I transcribe recorded interviews. The format includes the identification of the speaker at the left margin followed by what they said. To speed up the typing I use the short abbreviation I: when the interviewer is speaking, and M: or F: when the interviewee is speaking. When I'm all done I use Find & Replace to change I: to Interviewer:, and then change M: (or F:) to Interviewee:. This process has been working fine for months. The day before yesterday it stopped applying the italic format during replace.How do I figure out what happened, and then how do I fix it?

o In the Find & Replace dialogue, click More Options.
o With the cursor in the "Replace with" box, click Format and then click Italic under Typeface on the Font tab. (You don't need to select a Font or Size.)

Is that what you are doing? The format attribute of the "Replace with" text appears to be remembered; did you perhaps for some reason click No Format and cancel your italics the day before yesterday?

I trust this helps.
