Description kaimikael 2005-05-02 14:36:15 UTC
Do the following:
Create a Presentation document.  Write the following:

Introductory text
Bullet item one
Bullet item two
Bullet item three

Select the bullet items, choose Format->Numbering/Bullets…, choose a numbered style.
The list is now numbered - starting from 2.  One has to set the starting number to 0 to get it to start 
from 1.  This works as intended in Writer, so the problem is specific to Impress.

I am running NeoOffice/J 1.1 Release Candidate, patch 3 under OS X 10.3.9, and have also reproduced 
the problem under 1.1.2.

Well, I'm not sure what additional detail to give than what I wrote above, but I attached a file which 
should show the problem, it has six clauses that are numbered starting from 2.  I created the file as 
follows, giving the menu titles in the Swedish form I get them:
Select Arkiv->Nytt->Presentation.
Click on Text icon in left toolbar.
Drag out text area.
Start typing text with returns between paragraphs.
Drag mouse to select all paragraphs except the first one.
Select Format->Numrering/punktuppställning…
Choose tab Numreringstyp if not on top by default.
Choose any of the numbering alternatives.
The selected paragraphs will now be a numbered list, starting from 2, II, B, or whatever you chose.  
Should you select all paragraphs except the first *two* ones, you will instead get numbering from 3, III, 
C, and so on for the number of non-selected paragraphs.  You will get the same effect if you choose 
Punktuppställningstecken  (the right-most icon) from the mid-upper toolbar.

This is not a bug but the behaviour should be changed.
The behaviour in the writer is different to this behaviour. Therefore the
behaviour is inconsistent.
Comment 6 drewparsons 2007-04-16 10:03:31 UTC
This bug still exists in OpenOffice 2.0.4.

OpenOffice Impress appears to have strangely implemented numbering by using line
numbers within the given text box. It neglects natural numbering starting at 1,
and ignores your instruction to start numbering at <n> using the dialog box at
"Bullets and Numbering"/Customize.

Found on Linux i386, Debian version 2.0.4.dfsg.2-7.

The ability to restart the list numbering could provide a fix for this issue as
