Formating error with bullets

1) Start a new Writer document
2) Use Lorem Ipsum text to have some content (https://loremipsumgenerator.com/generator/?n=2&t=p)
3) edit "Corps de texte" formating style (not the default style) to have a spacing at 3 cm from the end
4) apply this style to all the text : a spacing between right of the document and characters is set (3 cm)
5) Press [F12] or use bullets icon

the text goes to the end right, without spacing.

(have to explain : end spacing)
Comment 2 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2018-02-16 20:13:41 UTC
I reproduce with LO but I do not know if it is a bug or not.

Best regards. JBF

Word comparison

I suppose it's a bug because doing same operations on Word, gives the right result. See attachment

Paging UX: should we mimic Microsoft Office in this?

Open Office 4

@buovjaga of course, it's not a "Microsoft cloning or not", it's a setting that said "Indent after text", meaning "up to the marge"
Formating style is important for book or course writing.
Bug is present in OpenOffice 4 too !
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2018-03-07 17:32:58 UTC
Ok, fine, let's forget about UX.
Comment 8 Regina Henschel 2018-03-07 17:35:36 UTC
That is the known problem, that right indent is ignored, if the paragraph belongs to a list. It is surely a bug.

Thanks Regina ! I confirm the description is right on bug 83532
I don't know but you can close this one (because my english isn't so good as the description on bug 83532)
This would avoid archiving too much datas and will reduce bug list ? Thanks

Test file with 'indent after text' equal on both paragraph's style.

With the same 'indent after text' on both paragraph styles, I think it's working fine. Buovjaga file modifyed to have the same 'indent after text' and paragraph justification to see better the matter.
