Description Timur 2018-01-19 09:40:24 UTC
1. Create or open a document with chapter numbering like attachment 115699 [details]
2. Set cursor to level 2 paragraph (or change)
3. open Tools-Chapter Numbering dialog
Experienced: focus in Level is set to level 1 or previously open level
Expected: focus is set to paragraph(s) where cursor is (or set to 1-10 if paragraphs of different levels are marked)

Note: I didn't find existing bug. There's Bug 78783 but I didn't understand if it's related.

It's a nice idea. In my daily work I do not experience current behavior as a problem however.

In that case I would rather prefer to have the highest level selected.

@heiko: easyHackify this one?

repro 7.2+

I noticed that Format -> Bullets and Numbering works "as expected". So some code from there could be borrowed.  (But care should be taken to NOT be misleading if the current paragraph is not actually using Chapter numbering, but just normal numbering. In that case, I agree with Cor that it should default to Level 1.)
