Bug ID: 435431
Summary: Edit menu (Variables submenu) doesn't work as
Platform: Gentoo Packages
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: davidbryant at gvtc.com
Target Milestone: ---
There are a few glitches in the Edit --> Variables > menu items. In particular,
the "First Name" option extracts Last Name, not First Name.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open the Composer, fill in "To:" and "CC:" fields ("From:" is pre-filled).
2. Position the cursor somewhere in the main Composer window.
3. Select menu item Edit --> Variable > To > To Field First Name (or ... CC >
Field First Name, or ... From > From Field First Name).
The selected menu item inserts the person's last name.
I expected this function to insert the person's first name, as advertised.
Linux/KDE Plasma: Yes!
(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.20.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.77.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
I ran across this bug while working on the documentation update project. There
are a couple of other problems with "Variables >" ... check out "Edit -->
Variables > Attachments > Names and Sizes" (appends the literal value "AND
SIZES" to the list of attachments' names ... I expected to see the size of each
attachment, sort of the way sizes are displayed in the list of attachments
underneath the main Composer window) and also try "Edit --> Variables >
Date/Time > Time" (appends the literal value "LONG" to hh:mm:ss AM/PM, where I
expected to see, e.g., "GMT" or "UTC" or "CDT").
See the attached screenshot, where I tried each of the four options (Address,
Last Name, First Name, Name) for "To >", "From >", and "CC >", respectively.
First Name and Last Name are stored as separate fields in KAddressBook, and
"Name" includes both a person's first and last names, so these functions work
almost right ... only the "First Name" option is misbehaving.
