Does anyone know why in Libreoffice the auto formatting of Ordinal Numbers (i.e. 1st / 2nd / 3rd etc..) isn't working?

I've checked the settings and it's ticked as described in the link...

This seems to be a bug in the Linux version of libreoffice. I can reproduce this with the latest stable. There are two relevant bug reports already: #38242 and #48971. You may subscribe to those bugs to receive any news on this issue. –  tohuwawohu May 4 '12 at 7:20
Thank you for the comment - I will watch for an update. Funny how it was working fine in all previous version of Libreoffice Writer. –  Peter May 4 '12 at 17:23
