Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-26 22:44:50 UTC
1) Open attachment 127615 [details]
2) Select numbered list entries 1, 2 and 3 under Test1
3) Move cursor below Test3
4) Paste Special > Formatted Text [RTF]
5) Notice that not all of the inserted lines are part of a numbered list

This can be seen in attachment 127651 [details] at 0:21 to 0:25 (without crlf) and 0:49 to 0:53 (with crlf).

The paste without entry 3's crlf broke from its earlier/better behaviour in 4.0, while the paste with crlf broke from its earlier/better behaviour in 4.2.

Comment 2 Xisco Faulí 2016-10-06 10:31:16 UTC
In Version (Build ID: efca6f15609322f62a35619619a6d5fe5c9bd5a) the behaviour I'm observing is that the first time I paste the text it's pasted with the numbered list, however, if I undo the action and paste it again, this time the numbers are gone.
Comment 3 Xisco Faulí 2016-10-06 10:50:04 UTC
Behavior commented in comment 2 already observed in LibreOffice 3.5.0 
Build ID: d6cde02, thus, prebibisect.
However, it's ok in LibreOffice 3.3.0
