Description nissen472 2014-07-26 19:57:46 UTC
Documents with numbering in paragraph tends to cause the editor to "Stick in "Numbering/indent" mode, even after I send a double CR to end the sequence. Normally a double CR would send an "end special numbering/indent/bullets" instruction. V-e-e-e-e-ry unnerving and aggravating.
My document today crashed after infuriating me with this hiccup. Recovery was able to retrace the original document, however this still is requiring a look into repair.

The described behavior does not happen on 32-bit Linux, version
AOO411m3(Build:9773)  -  Rev. 1612804
2014-07-23 11:36 - Linux i686

The double CR causes a break from numbering sequence as expected. So, maybe it needs to be tested just with Windows 7.

The bug was listed for all Windows 7 operating systems, so I will attempt the replicate the bug on my own machine (Windows 7 64 bit).

1.) Open Office Writer
2.) Type the following content into the writer:
  a.) 1 I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts There they are all standing in a row Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head Give them a twist a flick of the wrist That’s what the showman said 2 I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts There they are all standing in a row Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head Give them a twist a flick of the wrist That’s what the showman said 5 I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts There they are all standing in a row Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head Give them a twist a flick of the wrist That’s what the showman said
3.) Hit ENTER (or Carriage Return)
4.) Click the Numbering (On/Off) Button on the toolbar (You can also try F12)
5.) For (1.) type ASDF1. Hit ENTER
6.) For (2.) type ASDF2.  Hit Enter
7.) For (3.) Type ASDF4. Hit Enter
8.) Hit Enter again

The bug states that this should have done one of two things:
1.) Should have crashed the program
2.) Would not have left the numbering mode
On my test machine, neither of these errors showed.

What I have done is to include the extra "numbering/bullets toolbar on one side of the ui. When this occurs, as it does more than I'd like, and multiple "carriage returns " do not auto off thefeature, I then go up to the Bullet bar, and manually turn this off.
This may be a pecific issue created by running multipl antilog/antivirus software, as I also must take specific precautions in other software.

Can you include a set of steps, like the post above, to help explain how you arrived at this bug or post a video?  I am having issues trying to replicate your bug based on your explanations.

For example, "numbering/bullets toolbar on one side of the ui."  I do not know where this comes from.  Do you mean you are using a different toolbar, or added a specific button, to your toolbar?  If so, how did you enable this feature?  And how did you move it to "one side?"
Comment 5 Scott 2014-09-24 15:29:05 UTC
I ran the same test, but I used the "Properties" UI for numbering and for bullets and was unable to replicate the bug you mentioned.  

In other words, I ran the same steps as outlined above, but instead of clicking the top toolbar button for numbering and for bullets, I click the same type of button on the Right Side "Properties" window.
Comment 6 Scott 2014-09-29 14:18:04 UTC
Ive revised the steps, I am unable to replicate the bug on version 4.1.1.

Nissen472, if you are still having this issue, try updating to the latest version of Open Office.  This could help correct your issue.

Open Office Writer

Comment 8 nissen472 2014-09-29 15:01:32 UTC
 Just found out that turning off numbering/bulleting, manually, takes care of the issue. Numbering =F12, then backspace once, then carriage return to next line. 
Consider case closed/solved.
Comment 9 Scott 2014-09-29 17:28:35 UTC
Even with your work around, if the problem exists it is still a bug.  If this is happening, this can be considered a fairly major issue. 

This "failure" could lead to something more serious (I am more concerned about your program crashing and you almost losing your work).

If you get time, can you replicate the the bug like the steps listed above?  If my steps are not exactly what you did, could you specify what you did differently?
