In Impress, when creating a bullet item using a template, if I "tab" to the right (using the icon) the bullet type does not change and the text size doesn't become slightly smaller as in PowerPoint. Will this adaptation be made in the final version or am I doing something wrong?

Oo version: 2beta2 Os: winxp sp2 Proc: intel mobile 2.0 ghz Mem: 1gb ddr2 Vid: nvidia geforce go 6600 te I did not have a problem with this. I created new bullets and added text and then proceeded in tabbing to the right, so as to make the tabbed bullet a further subsection of the main bulleted item. It seems that describing this process is a little difficult. When I performed the operation the bullet icons did get smaller as well as the text.

PC: Windows XP Home SP2 AMD XP 2200+ (cpu) GeForce FX 5200 (256 mb) 1 GB Corsair RAM Laptop: Windows XP Pro SP2 Pentium 4 (3.4ghz), hyperthreaded GeForce FX Go5700 (128 mb) 1 GB Corsair RAM ver: Open Office Beta 2 build: 1.9.125 David Yauch and Miguel Ramos We couldn't replicate the bug on either of the two systems. When we typed in the slide and used the "Demote" button the text would become a smaller font size.

(Justin Kelley 9/11/2005) My specs are as follows: - OO 2.0 Beta - Dell Dimension XPS PC - Windows XP Professional SP2 - Pentium 4 3.8 GHz Processor - 2.0 GB DDR RAM I was able to replicate, then compared the results to MS PowerPoint like the reporter did. In my case, the results were somewhat different. The bullet type did change, but not to a different type each time like PowerPoint. The same type was reused every other level. Regarding the font size, it decreased only up to the fourth level. After that the size remained static, and so did the bullet type. Specifically, what font was used when this report was filed? This would be important because each font type displays differently. Considering font displays are critical to almost any text based application, I would rank this issue with a high level of importance.

I don't know how to assess whether this is a problem or not. Tabbing (with the tab key or the demote icon) moves text from one outline level to the next. The formatting of the text is then controlled by the Master slide, which is defined by the template. Which template is in use? What text formatting does it specify for outline slides?

Here's a variation of what I did to create the question. I opened a MS PowerPoint template. I picked a layout that had no bullet list options. I wrote three lines of text. Then I highlighted all three lines of text. I then left-hand clicked on the bulleting icon to create three lines of bulleted text. Then I moved the cursor to the middle bulleted line of text and pressed the tab key on my keyboard. The text moved over to the right. The bullet changed its appearance but the text remained the same size. Hope that helps with the question.

With the last description I can reproduce the bug. please have a look. When I do the same in PPT the bullet change it's size.
