Description t3rmin 2006-06-11 04:26:12 UTC
Here's the scenario. I'm teaching a class, for which I have prepared material in
the form of a large outline. Each class I select the portion of the outline
which we will cover that day, print it, and hand out copies to my students.

The problem is, when printing a selected portion of an outline, the numbering is
reset (begins with 1, I, or A, depending on how the outline is formatted) on the
output.

For instance, if I had this outline:
1.
  a.
  b.
2.
  a.
  b.
3.
  a.
  b.

... and I selected point 2 and its sub-points, and printed it, the output would
read:
1.
  a.
  b.

... rather than:
2.
  a.
  b.

You can see how this would be confusing to my students, and would make putting
all the handouts together at the end of the course to form the full outline (as
was my intention) impossible, since the order is all messed up.

I can't imagine this being a feature, but on the off-chance this is intended
behavior, there should be an option to turn it off.

This behavior has been observed in recent 2.x versions of OpenOffice on Windows
and Mac (and in NeoOffice).

MRU->FME: this problem is very similar to issue 47779.
Numberings are restarted on printout when a part of it is selected and printed.
