Description sachem 2005-08-19 04:13:31 UTC
In Impress, when creating a bullet item using a template, if I "tab" to the 
right (using the icon) the bullet type does not change and the text size 
doesn't become slightly smaller as in PowerPoint.  Will this adaptation be 
made in the final version or am I doing something wrong?

I can't reproduce the bug.
Please attach a bugdoc.

I did not have a problem with this.  I created new bullets and added text and 
then proceeded in tabbing to the right, so as to make the tabbed bullet a 
further subsection of the main bulleted item.  It seems that describing this 
process is a little difficult.  When I performed the operation the bullet 
icons did get smaller as well as the text.

We couldn't replicate the bug on either of the two systems.  When we typed in
the slide and used the "Demote" button the text would become a smaller font size.

My specs are as follows:
- OO 2.0 Beta
- Dell Dimension XPS PC
- Windows XP Professional SP2
- Pentium 4 3.8 GHz Processor
- 2.0 GB DDR RAM

I was able to replicate, then compared the results to MS PowerPoint like the 
reporter did.  In my case, the results were somewhat different.  The bullet 
type did change, but not to a different type each time like PowerPoint.  The 
same type was reused every other level.  Regarding the font size, it decreased 
only up to the fourth level.  After that the size remained static, and so did 
the bullet type.

Specifically, what font was used when this report was filed?  This would be 
important because each font type displays differently.

Considering font displays are critical to almost any text based application, I 
would rank this issue with a high level of importance.

I don't know how to assess whether this is a problem or not. Tabbing (with the
tab key or the demote icon) moves text from one outline level to the next. The
formatting of the text is then controlled by the Master slide, which is defined
by the template. Which template is in use? What text formatting does it specify
for outline slides?
Comment 7 sachem 2005-09-20 21:02:08 UTC
Here's a variation of what I did to create the question.
I opened a MS PowerPoint template.
I picked a layout that had no bullet list options.
I wrote three lines of text.
Then I highlighted all three lines of text.
I then left-hand clicked on the bulleting icon to create three lines of 
bulleted text.
Then I moved the cursor to the middle bulleted line of text and pressed the 
tab key on my keyboard.
The text moved over to the right.  The bullet changed its appearance but the 
text remained the same size.

Hope that helps with the question.

Set to  new and change the target.
Comment 9 christian.guenther 2005-10-06 14:14:24 UTC
With the last description I can reproduce the bug.
please have a look.
When I do the same in PPT the bullet change it's size.
