Description Unknown 2002-12-20 18:47:53 UTC
A bulleted list in a text document created with OpenOffice and saved in Rich Text Format is viewed as a numbered list when viewed by MS Word. Note that a numbered list created and saved in a similar manner is viewed by MS Word as a numbered list.

MRU->CMC: We once implemented it for the WW export. Would the effort be tenable for having this in the the RTF export?

What I'm seeing on 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 on Windows 2000, is that when I export a bulleted list as either RTF or Word 97, when I view the document in Word 2000, the bullets look like a dot superimposed with a reverse video "10". Very strange. I reproduced this with a simple two-item list that I created from scratch in OOo, using the default font. It seems to work better if I change the bullet from the OpenSymbol font to something in the Symbol font.

cmc->mmaher: Would be nice to do this, but resource are tight. We need to scan through all the numbering a document before we export it to rtf and make all the pseudo-fonts (like we do in word export) which we would like to export the starsymbol usages to. and export them at the start of the document along with all the normally used fonts (like we currently do) and then when we really export the numbering during the document we would substitute the bullet char for the equivalent windows font char, and use the pseudo-font id instead of the starsymbol font id.

mmaher->flr: Yours I think
Comment 9 jjr16 2005-08-10 03:01:57 UTC
Doesn't this still happen in all OS's? (Not just Linux) Wouldn't this not be necessary anymore if StarSymbol is not referred to/used anymore (xf. issue 26319)? (add as dependent?)
