Description ben_roe 2004-10-04 18:10:45 UTC
Bullet point behaviour in Presentation is broken. For example:

Steps to reproduce:
1) Click "bullets on" button in a text box
2) Enter one line of text as first line
3) Press enter to create next bullet point
4) Press tab to indent bullet
5) Change your mind and press backspace to delete second bullet

First bullet point is indented by the same amount as user indented second bullet
point before deleting it, and won't respond to unindent commands

Expected Behaviour:
Second bullet point is removed, first bullet point is unaffected

Reassigned to Christian.
Comment 2 thackert 2004-11-01 10:35:13 UTC
Here it works with OOo-1.1.3 (German version) and SuSE 9.1 as expected. So I
cannot confirm this behaviour here.
Comment 3 ben_roe 2004-11-10 13:16:47 UTC
Still happens in the 1.1.3 version I just downloaded from
Possibly something SuSE has patched?
Comment 4 thackert 2004-11-14 09:49:14 UTC
Which distribution are you using? The OOo versions I am running are also 
original ones from OOo (1.1.3, 1.9.60 and one CWS version from last 
week), so I do not think that this is that important ... Maybe some updates 
or something I have installed at the meantime ... ;) 
Comment 5 ben_roe 2004-11-16 18:33:13 UTC
I'm using Ubuntu (Warty Warthog official), which uses GNOME 2.8, libc-2.3.2 and
XFree86-4.3.0. I've removed the distro version of Openoffice (1.1.2) completely
and installed 1.1.3 in /usr/local.

It only happens in text boxes with left align set, as far as I can see.

set to new and change the milestone and the prio
Comment 7 christian.guenther 2004-12-13 17:11:36 UTC
I can reproduce the bug.
When I deselect the textobject after deleting the second bullet point the first
line jump back to the correct position.
Please have a look.
Comment 8 ben_roe 2004-12-13 17:29:17 UTC
I can't reproduce it on the KDE-integrated build of 1.1.3 I downloaded a while
back (the one linked to by or in the Mandrake 10.1 official version
of 1.1.3 I currently have installed.

It seems that versions which do show this bug are the ones which don't do the
alternating bullet point style change on pressing tab. I guess whichever patch
it is which provides that functionality also fixes this bug.

This Issue requires more information ('needmoreinfo'), but has not been updated
within the last year. Please provide feedback and re-test with one of the latest
versions of OOo - the problem(s) may have already been addressed. Either use the
latest stable version:
or consider trying the new OOo 3 BETA (still in testing):

Please report back the outcome so this Issue may be closed or progressed as
