Bug ID: 116387
           Summary: Autocorrect greek character σ (sigma) to ς (final
                    sigma) when at the end of a word
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: 3.3.0 release
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Localization

 Essentialy an enhancement: 
how to add a feature that MS Office has to LibreOffice: in Greek the letter σ
(which stands for s) when at the end of a word is automatically corrected to ς
(known in Greek as "final s"). 
In Greek layout, σ is assigned to key S while ς is assigned to key W. The
majority of users in Greece have learned to type on MS Word so W has become a
somewhat dead key in Greek layout. Shaking the habit, even if someone decides
to try and commit to it, can be tricky so adding this feature would boost ease
of use for a big part of the Greek community.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type any word in Greek ending in σ
2. be sure to type it using S key (corresponding to σ) not W key (which prints

Actual Results:  
σ does not automatically change to ς

Expected Results:
σ should change to ς. They are essentially the same character, just the form
changes when at the end of a word.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
A workaround and a solution was provided on the IRC chat at #libreoffice by

The workaround is to search for σ\b and replace with ς (with regular
expressions enabled).

The solution is to add an autocorrect entry with .*σ with ς as replacement

Both work like a charm so I wanted to share with the community!
