Subject [Bug 55292] XSSFTextBox enhancements
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2013 19:44:35 GMT

--- Comment #18 from Darren Roberts <robertsdjguard-poidev@yahoo.com> ---
But what happens when someone loads a file containing numbered bullets in a
TextBox? The other way to look at it is as I said in an earlier response the
getText method is a simple way to get the basic text out, for anything more
complicated the developer would need to parse the paragraphs manually which
means they have the headache of working this out for themselves anyway.

I see no reason to exclude setBulletAutoNumber as that caters to the dev's like
me who are creating xlsx files with POI more than reading them. 

But since the current missing piece of information is how Excel calculates the
numbers, perhaps in the getText method instead of calulating (guessing) what
the number should be then we should just output something identifiable like
"[autonum] bullet text" or "? bullet text". That way we've informed the dev
that there should be a number or something there, but it's up to them how to
handle it?

It would be so much easier if the schema just stored the value Excel assigned
the bullet, even if it was just a hint... <sigh>
