tdf#76817 ooxmlexport: only use stylename for Outline list
In LibreOffice, the special, built-in, Outline numbering style
("Chapter Numbering") is connected via the paragraph style
to control the numbering.

Thus, only the ParaStyleName should be written to
the paragraph properties, and not the direct numbering properties.
Both MSO and LO get confused when there are multiple definitions
for outline numbering.

Bisected with: bibisect-linux64-6.1

05 Orfanosentel bug resavedRT2003.pdf: round tripped in LO, then pdfed by Word2003

Important note: step 3 indicates that the problem is only seen in Word. I am not able to reproduce this with Word 2003 - which is the version readily available to me.
Comment 3 Justin L 2018-04-03 12:17:02 UTC
Also unable to reproduce missing first level numbering with office 2010.  However, I noticed that in both 2003 and 2010, that the sub-level numbering  in section was started at 1.2 instead of 3.1.
Comment 4 Justin L 2018-04-14 15:00:20 UTC
Interesting.  The first RT has problems in word, but a second RT doesn't.
It appears that having two styles with name "Heading 1" and "heading 1" can cause a problem (testing with office 2010).  The styleId is different (Heading1 and Heading11), and even though it uses the right styleId (Heading1), it appears to pick up the settings of "heading 1".  Manually removing Heading11 fixes it.  The second round-trip automatically remove Heading11 and also abstractnumbering 2.
Comment 5 Justin L 2018-04-16 15:55:08 UTC
Just trying to merge or get rid of Heading1 or heading1 might be complicated.  see https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/39396/

05 Orfanosentel bugRT2013.docx: .doc roundtripped by MSO2013

This actually looks more like a Microsoft bug than anything. Also, if I first round-trip the .doc file in MSO2003/2010/2013, then LO also also round-trips it OK as can be proven by this 2013-created .docx.

I guess it is OK to leave this bug open, but I'm going to treat it as WONTFIX since it seems very unlikely to re-surface, probably isn't truly a regression, and is so easily fixed by just one extra save.

I see numbering for first level headings in MSO 2016 after saving the doc in

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 861b556bb3779242951c03b3f68a32eb8c15db02
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Vulkan; VCL: win; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

So => WFM in main case, but

I see bug with second level headings numbering as said Justin in Comment 3

Xisco, may be close it as WFM or better just change the summary?
Comment 9 Timur 2020-06-26 15:53:09 UTC
I changed the summary.
Comment 10 Justin L 2021-08-11 11:02:22 UTC
repro 7.3+ that Word 2016 sees the first round-trip with sublevels of 1.2 under "3 Discussion", but that the second round-trip rightly shows 3.1.

It always looks right in LO.
