Description Unknown 2003-10-09 17:31:03 UTC
I have a numbered list with one line in between each item (paragraph). When I 
create a new line (pressing Enter key) MS Word automatically adds the line 
between the previuos paragraph and the new one I'm creating. OO doesn't: it 
creates the new paragraph just below the previous one. I'll try to attach a 
couple of jpg images to explain this.

Hi luismmartinezr,

thanks for using and supporting OpenOffice...

If you don't want to select the list and set line space to double you
may try this:
-> [Ctrl]+[2] to enable double line space
-> Insert the List as usual
-> [Ctrl]+[1] to disable double line space and set back to sinle line 
If this doesn't help you send a new comment and we will make an 
enhancement wish out of this...
I'll wait until 12/15/2003...

mci: your workaround works just fine. It is just desirable to have 
similar functionality to MS Word. I'm new user in this issue tracking 
system so I don't know how to close this issue under 
status "workaround provided" or something like that. Regards.

I think a feature that adds an extra empty line between items of numbered lists
automatically if the user has begun the list with an extra empty line is a bad
feature. It encourages bad formatting. Better modify the Indents and Spacing
settings in the paragraph style that's being used for numbered lists.

However, I will comfirm this for the developers to decide.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
