Although spell-check for Romanian is enabled and the auto-correct options should follow that spell-check language, what happens is that i is changed automatically (auto-corrected) to I just like in English. A such auto-correction is not present for Romanian. It is for US English.

If I want to write something like Ei i-au spus ("They told him"), when I write - after i the auto-correction produces I- (the same letter but uppercase) instead of i- and I get the incorrect if not biblical Ei I-au spus ('They told Him', as if 'they' were talking to God.) It is in fact the English auto-correction from i to I (like in I am).

Also, i is changed to uppercase after clicking space after it (only that i alone is not a word in Romanian.

I have tested with different common fonts. It does not seem font-related.

First: UPDATE. Version doesn't seem affected by this already.

In this answer I got a solution for my older version:

set Romanian as default in Options - Language Settings - Languages - Default Languages for Documents

To me this looks like a bug. Now I can even roll back to English US for default language for documents and if I change a paragraph language to Romanian the problem is absent. Odd, like a small bug fixed by changing at least once the English US default language for documents.

On the older version (4.7) a different word was being replaced with the English form no matter the changes above (Excelent became Excellent). In case this kind of problem happens in any case there is the more radical solution of disabling 'Use replacement table' - 'Autocorrect while typing' under 'Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoCorrect options', Options tab. (To select the language first go to the 'Replace' tab.)

I'm not sure i understand your question. Can you be more explicit, please? Just in case, make sure your entire text is written in romanian language (select it all and go to Tools menu, Language Command, For Selection Subcommand, and select Romanian language option. Or, it could be a font issue. As you probably already know, some (older) fonts are not rendered correctly in Romanian language,and LibreOffice tries to render them to the most accurate replacement. The font issue is universal, it's not LibreOffice specific. It happens in MS Word too. Just try a different font, like Google Noto (NoTofu).

i can confirm this happens no matter the font in LO 4.3.2 in Linux Mint 17.2. I will complete my question with more images and details: ”i” is automatically changed to „I” no matter the font. This is done by auto-correction when writing ”-” after ”i”.

sorry for the initial wrong and incomplete posting. I have tried to correct and complete it. I will add more details.
