Subject [DISCUSS]Actually attach a list style to the "Numbering #" paragraph styles
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 14:15:08 GMT
On Writer, you have paragraph styles and numbering styles, and it is
possible to call the second kind of styles from the first ones in order to
build a series of paragraphs with automatic numbering or bullets.

On its default configuration, Writer offers a series of paragraph styles
called "Numbering #", with # going from 1 to 10 (and "Start", "Cont." and
"End" variants of all of them), as well as paragraph styles called "List

The problem is that those paragraph styles cannot be used out of the box to
make numbered lists or bullets because they do not have a numbering style
associated: the "Numbering style" on the "Outline & Numbering" tab inside
the style properties is set to "None" on all those styles.

On the current form, those paragraph styles do not fulfil any purpose and
every now  and then (not very often, that's true) we have on the forums
confused users that do not understand why those "Numbering" styles do not
do numbering at all.

I think the default built-in template should be changed to actually
associate numbering styles to those paragraph styles.

See this old request on bugzilla

Bug 42280 - Numbering and List paragraph styles should have numbering style
by default

What do you think?
