Description mschipperheyn1 2007-04-22 20:03:23 UTC
Often times I create a new slide by positioning the cursor behind the last bulleted text and pressing SHIFT+TAB. When I do this I often find that the text gets only partly formatted to the header style. The text size may be different and the text often still had a bullet in front of it. This kind of behaviour: text doesn't adher to paragraph style even when you actually select the style for the parapgraph in the style menu occurs a lot in Writer too. It's my main gripe with Open Office. Cheers, Marc

Please write a step by step description to reproduce the bug. In which view does the bug occures (I suppose it's the outline view)
Comment 3 mschipperheyn1 2007-04-23 16:27:40 UTC
Yes, it is in the outline view. I don't have time for a step-by-step now. Will do later.

Hi Marc, You create a new slide by Shft-Tab? Cor
Comment 5 mschipperheyn1 2007-04-25 12:28:30 UTC
Almost always. You don't? :-) It's the fastest way to work in the outline view. I try to avoid using the mouse because it slows me down. I guess I could use CTRL + N or something. But this IMHO "should" work.

Shft-Tab only works at the beginning of a line, not at the end or half way the line. I cannot see any ill-formatted text as a result. Sorry. Also in Writer, I'm very pleased with the stability of applying styles. So maybe you can give more information on type of document, OS, version OOo, test documents etc. Thanks.

I understand that SHIFT-TAB only works at the beginning of the line. Happens on and off. I have constant issues with applying styles in Writer. But whenever I report these issues, they are apparently hard to reproduce and they are rejected. I also find them reproducable on and off. I work with OpenOffice every day, particularly Writer. I copy a lot from Word documents and always save my documents as Microsoft Word XP, Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Powerpoint formats. Perhaps this has something to do with it. I would expect everybody who does so and uses styles extensively (as opposed to "by hand formatting") to run into these issues also.

Thanks for the hint with saving in PPT. Set to new and change the target.

- start an Impress and choÃŸose a title text layout. - change to the outline view - enter a title text and 2 paragraphs of text. - save the document as ppt. - make a reload - change to the outline view again - go to the begining of the second paragraph and press shift tab to 'make a new slide' - the text become the title text of the new slide but the 'first level' bullet still exists. I send the issue to you because the bug doesn't occurs without saving it as ppt. Please have a look.
