Description duckworth 2003-10-30 15:04:34 UTC
* Create a file (test-1.sxw) containing a numbered list (I made one containing a 
list of 3 items, 3 bullets, and another bulleted list of 3 items) 
1. a 
2. b 
3. c 
* Copy test-1.sxw to test-2.sxw and test-3.sxw 
* Create a master document containing all three documents 
* The list numbering in one document is incorrect: 
  1,2,3 ; 1,2,3; 4,5,6 
(4,5,6 is incorrect) 
(This is not good when you have a 200 page document).  Sometimes a "update 
section" makes the lists number themselves correctly.  It seems that the error can 
shift between documents (a race condition).  I suspect that the lists are given the 
same name in different documents.  A possibly related problem is that bullets 
can change into numbered lists spontaneously in the master document.

Hi hb,

I think this is something for you...

I tried this on Solaris and there were some versions of numbering through the 
I made a small document with numbering and bullets and copied it to 3 files
(1.sxw, 2.sxw, 3.sxw):
1. a
2. b
3. c
*  d
*  e
*  f

after "update all" I got:
1. a
2. b
3. c
*  d
*  e
*  f
4. a
5. b
6. c
*  d
*  e
*  f
1. a
2. b
3. c
*  d
*  e
*  f

If this isn't anything for you, please dispatch, thanks...
