Description tab 2010-08-01 21:14:15 UTC
This came from the Forum, where some arcane explanations about lists were given,
but left open the question: why does 'default formatting' (^m) not reset the
numbering, if the default format specifies 'none'?
In FirstLin.odt, right-click 'aaa', or click Format>Parag:
Indents&Spacing.FirstLineIndent=0.25: wrong. Outline&Numbering: Numbering3:
wrong. 'aaa' is supposed to be of style FirstLineIndent, but it's not; hitting
^m (default formatting) does not help.

The help says:
"Default Formatting

Removes direct formatting and formatting by character styles from the selection.
Direct formatting is formatting that you applied without using styles, such as
setting bold typeface by clicking the Bold icon."

As you are using styles, the formatting is not reset.

OK. This behaviour fits the definition. But it's so counter-intuitive that even
a Forum moderator (Hagar de l'est) writes: "This is a bug IMHO. It has always
existed I think. But 3.2.1 is worse at resetting the defaults of a paragraph."
   So, there may be an enhancement: reset completely a style by:
** double-clicking the style in the stylist --that's what the average user
expects; double-clicking does not imply 'direct formatting only';
** or by hitting ^m twice: The first time, it just 'removes direct formatting
and ...'; the 2nd time, it also resets changes done by styles.
