Difference between MSO and LO

I fixed it partially. I only can't to change picture size because there is difference between MSO and LO behaviors.

In MSO bullet pics size depends on height of the line.

In LO the pics depends on the rule.

Thanks for your patch. This is a nice improvement.

There's actually an enhancement request for this. 
Bug 73966 - FORMATTING: bullets images should resize with text

It might be worth looking at how the ppt importer handles this. It correctly scales up and down graphics of bullets. 

Do you have any thoughts on this issue?
Comment 7 Miklos Vajna 2017-04-14 22:21:37 UTC
What Vitaliy writes is correct. I'm not sure if the ppt importer is relevant here, since Writer's numbering is a separate implementation from the editeng numbering.
