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.

Comment 7 caolanm 2004-03-05 13:00:02 UTC
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?)
