Description kloostec 2006-11-03 05:31:00 UTC
Issue shows up with:

OpenOffice 2.0.2 (Ubuntu Linux) and 2.0.4 (Windows Server 2003).


In writer, when creating a simple list and having it picked up with auto-
numbering, the list works as expected with numbers, but not with letters.

How to reproduce:

1) Open writer
2) Type a list in the following format:


3) Press enter.  The list item (c) will indent, and underneath, a new item (ci) 
will show up.

Expected results:

After item (a) is typed, the auto-numbering should kick in, indent item (a) and 
the next item should be (b).

Note that it works perfectly fine if numbers are used.  To show expected 

1) Open writer
2) Type a list in the following format:


3) Press enter.  See that (1) is indented, and that the list is continued with 
item (2).

MRU->OS: typing "a)" in the text won't give an automaic numbering. BUT: typing
"c)" will start a romic numbering having c as additional character...

Same happens with other letters eg. 'd, i, l, m, D, I, L, M'. I haven't tested
all letters.

BTW, the German help isn't right in this point:

'Bei Betätigung der Eingabetaste am Ende einer Textzeile, die mit einer Zahl,
gefolgt von einem Punkt und einem Leerzeichen beginnt, wird automatisch eine
nummerierte Liste erstellt.'

It describes only the way with number and point and not the other kinds of
numbering (number with bracket, letter with point or bracket).
