Description sforbes 2004-12-23 12:31:04 UTC
A document was created in OOo m65 with a slide containing a list using Hebrew
(native) numbering.
When exporting to PDF, all the Hebrew numering where replaced by bullets.

To repro:
* Make sure that CTL and asian language support are enabled in OOo.
* Create a new presentation.
* Create a slide with a list- in the numbering/bullets choose "custom" and then
"native" to get the Hebrew numbering.
* Export to PDF.

Expected result:
* The PDF should contain the Hebrew numbering

Actual result:
* the hebrew numbering are lost, and replaced by bullets.

Hmm... it seems that the same thing happens when exporting to PowerPoint 2003
(which supports Hebrew numbering). File attached.

Comment 5 wolframgarten 2005-01-04 09:17:33 UTC
Opening the bugdoc in a current internal version I have
- bullets on the left side
- questionmarks on the right
- no numbering at all
Exporting this to pdf and ppt gives different results.
@sforbes: Would it be possible to attach a screenshot to see how it should be?
Thanks for your help.
Reassigned to Christian.

The numbering is also lost when exporting to MS Word format.

Have you been able to look at this problem?
Comment 9 alan 2006-10-17 15:14:52 UTC
Could this issue be assigned to me? I have done some work on this issue already,
and I have an interim solution.
Comment 10 alan 2007-09-11 15:09:54 UTC
The export looks ok to me when running 2.2.

works just fine in 2.4.0 (debian sid) on both Impress and Writer.

(i can attach original documents and exported pdf files, if necessary)

please see if you can close this one :-)

I tried exporting the test file on OOo 3.0 Debian Sarge. The PDF was fine, but
the Hebrew numbering was lost in the PPT file.
Comment 14 alan 2008-10-23 10:57:21 UTC
correction: on Debian Etch, not Sarge.
