Description drc 2004-11-08 20:25:39 UTC
The attached file has a bulleted list that insists on starting at 5.

It was made by typing an unbulleted list numbered 1 to 4 which suffered ugly

It was initially bulleted (with the numbering in the text) but the exdenting had
to be applied manually, and only affected the bullet symbol.

The embedded 1 to 4 were then deleted, and the bulletting format chanded from
default to 1. style.  At this point it started the numbering at 5, and this is
so persistent that the file can be saved and reloaded.

There are two problems (but probably one issue) - why did the file get made like
it is, and why can;t it be edited to start the bulletting count at 1.

Apologies - somehow Bugzilla got me to this issue when I was trying to attach a
screenshot to 34896.

This and attachment (id=19514) are noise.

Sorry everybody.  Can somebody undo it or is it now part of history?
Comment 5 christian.guenther 2005-01-04 12:41:33 UTC
The numbering depends on all paragraphs in the textbox (also the paragraphs
without a numbering)
I think this is a enhancement and not a bug.
Comment 6 christian.guenther 2005-01-04 12:44:49 UTC
I change the issue type to enhancement.

Still with me in OOo V2.0.2 on Debian Linux.

If we accept this behaviour, I suggest we make 'bulletted' a property of the
whole text box, and apply bullets as well as the numbering sequence explicitly
to every paragraph in the box.

That would expose the feature deficiency, make the workarounds unnecessary, and
make the behaviour predictable.

This issue should probably be linked to 38000 and 25244.  All three can be
circumvented by the same interim strategy until a fix is possible.

For what it's worth, I would vote to fix it properly by making all the writer
tool(s) work on text boxes, even including the importing of data fields.  But
I'm a user - and I do know it's easier to ask than to deliver.
