See also issue 25244

After a bulleted list in a rectangle, with Level 1 spacing to text set non zero,
switch bullets off.  Subsequent unbulletted text indents all lines after the
first line of each paragraph.

The workaround is to highlight this non-bulleted text, right click, select
numbering and bullets, and restore the Level 1 spacing to zero (or restore Default)

It looks as if some bulleting attributes are being shared with the attributes
for paragraphs in unbulleted text.

I can't reproduce the bug.
Please send me a step by step description to reproduce the bug.

NB - I have moved on to 1.9.62

Start-Programs-OOo 1.9.62 draw

Make a rectangle

Double click to edit text in it.

Set bullets on and select left justify (so that the bullets are in a tidy list)

Format bullets with o.5cm indent and 0.5cm spacing to text (so they look right 
relative to the text around them)

Format text 'adjust to contour' (so that long lines wrap within the rectangle)

type a line (bulletted)
type another line (bulletted)

turn bullets off

Type a paragraph that line wraps.  Ugh.

It seems to be similar to (or even the same bug/feature as) Issue 25244, in 
that bullet formatting indents subsequent lines after the first by calculating 
an indent value from the bullet indent value and the spacing-to-text value (OK) 
but then saving both the first-line-indent and the subsequent-line-indent as 
values with a scope that includes unbulletted text (Ugh)

The user work-around is to declare and format bullets after typing - unfriendly 
for many.

The workaround default is to set both values to zero - which makes ugly bullets.

Issue 25244 has been recategorised feature :-(

Somebody with knowledge of the code should probably put everything necessary 
into one of these two issues and close the other as a duplicate.

I can reproduce the bug.
Please have a look.

Ok, the problem is that once upon a time, the dreaded overlord marco b, lets
call him the skipper, forced the poor slave bees of the stardiv hive to add the
writer bullets to the impress application. That never worked out and that never
will be. The new NumBulletItem shares redundant information with the LRSpaceItem
therefor the LRSpaceItem is altered whenever we have a bullet in a paragraph.
When the third line without a bullet is created it nevertheless inherits its
wrong LRSpaceItem from the previous paragraph.

And yet it looks much uglier in OOo 2.0 than in OOo 1.0 because of the ms
interop enhancement from issue 25244

I send this issue to the poor soul currently responsible for the outliner
component but I advice not to change anything until we completly junk it and
have  a new one or just use the writer. The risk to break anything is way to
high for a x.0.x release. Also since it does not fullfill the patch criteria
anyway since there is a workaround I also retarget this to OOo Later

This Issue requires more information ('needmoreinfo'), but has not been updated
within the last year. Please re-test with one of the latest versions of OOo -
the problem(s) may have already been addressed. Either use the latest stable
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
necessary - otherwise it may be Resolved as Invalid in the future. You may also
wish to search for (and note) any duplicates of this Issue that may have
