Description nadavkav 2008-05-01 21:35:17 UTC
i started a text area object, wrote some lines, selected the lines and pressed
the bullets icon on the toolbar.the selected lines got bullets beside them BUT...

it was not acting as a list !

the up/down/in/out list's arrows icons did not work.
i am unable to move items up/down the list or move an item into sub/super level
in the list.

when i use the default template of a new slide with bullet list all works fine.

I've reproduce this behaviour on OOo-dev 3.3.0.
Running Win XP sp2.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new empty presentation:
   - Ctrl-N, 
   - then in presentation wizard click create for an empty presentation
   -  you should have a completely empty presentation now.

2. Copy the text below, and paste onto the blank presentation page.

3. Select the text. 

4. Do Format->Bullet and Numbering and choose and bullet format. OK to apply.

Notice now that the text is in bullet format, but that the Promote, demote, move
up, move down buttons are greyed out.

The attached presentation shows this behaviour. Place cursor in the list, and
notice the buttons greyed out.
Notice also on page 2 that these buttons work. The working list was created by
selecting from the layouts list of standard layouts.

I reproduced the behaviour on OOo-dev 3.0.0 Beta  (and obviously not 3.3.0)

Reproducible. Reassigned..

Bullet options are still greyed out in Impress. 
22.9.2010 I still have the same issue which is very annoying.

I could turn the list into a bullet list by selecting the text itself, but the
up,down, demote etc options are greyed out.

Very frustrating
