Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-12 17:41:24 UTC
Numering alignment (left, centered, right) can be set on two tab pages of the numbering dialog in Impress. One instace is on Positon tab page ("Numbering alignment"), the other one is on Customize tab page ("Alignment"). It useless to have both option setting the same property.
The second one on the Customize tab should be removed to make it consistent with Writer similar dialog. Also the alignment has an effect on the preview only on the position tab page, so better to set there.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Impress
2. Click into title shape and open numbering dialog (context menu -> Bullets and numbering..."
3. Check Position and Customize tab pages. Changing alignment on one of them makes alignemt changes on the other tab too, which shows it's the same option.

Actual Results:  
Two tab pages has the same option to set.

Expected Results:
Only the position tab page should have the alignment input field.

Reproducible: Always

I don't see the alignment option on the Customize tab.

Have you tested in master?

I see, I was wrong in the reproducer steps. It appears conditionally, which might be some old stuff since alignment is always allowed (can be set on Position tab).
You can find it if you create a slide with content (outliner) presentation object and open the bullets and numbering dialog from that outliner shape.
Comment 4 Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-24 18:00:20 UTC
Let's turn this into a easy hack. The code is here:
cui/ui/numberingoptionspage.ui -> defines the view / look of the page
cui/source/tabpages/numpages.cxx -> defines the behavior
SvxNumOptionsTabPage::Reset() method seems a good starting point.
