Description gcd48 2005-10-27 19:54:25 UTC
This issue relates to documents with "outline" format. This format is created
with the following procedure:

Bring down the Format menu
Click "Bullets and Numbering..."
Click the "outline" tab
Select any format

This makes available formats named "Heading 1", "Heading 2", etc.
In Microsoft Word, the number on this heading line (which is auto-generated)
aligns with the "First line indent" marker, but the text aligns with the
"hanging indent" marker. In Openoffice 2.0 (as well as 1.1.5), The number aligns
with the  "first line indent" marker, but the text as always a fixed offset from
the number. The "hanging indent" marker has no effect on it. This causes a
document created with Microsoft Word to be formatted differently in Openoffice.

Currently OO Writer is not able to process a tab character in a numbering in a
way MS Word does. This will be implemented for the next version. See spec and issue 31372.
