Conditional paragraph style

If a paragraph style is a conditional style and has "outline level" as condition, then the <text:h> element to which it is assigned, should get a text:cond-style-name attribute. LibreOffice does not write this attribute.

If LibreOffice opens a file, which uses conditional style, the condition is not evaluated. Worse, the <text:h> element contains the text:cond-style-name attribute for those applications, which can evaluate the condition, and the text:style-name attribute, which contains the style name of the last evaluation, for those applications, which cannot evaluate the condition. But LibreOffice takes the style name reference of the text:cond-style-name without evaluating the condition and therefore uses a wrong style for the headings.
Resaving such document looses the text:cond-style-name attribute.

The relevant part in the specification is section 19.776 text:cond-style-name.

The WebODF plugin renders the headings correctly.

Dear Regina Henschel,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat:

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
