Description perlancar 2018-08-10 12:28:15 UTC
Paragraph numbering reset even though the style does not instruct to reset numbering.

Steps to Reproduce:
I'm sorry I couldn't reproduce from scratch despite trying several combinations. This happens on a document that I'm working on. But I've managed to simplify the document to the minimum (attached).

1. Open the attached document.

2. Go to the line that says "Test".

3. Press Ctrl-2 to set paragraph style to Heading 2. 

Actual Results:
The numbering for the paragraph is "1.1".

Expected Results:
It should be "1.2" because "1.1" is already taken by the previous Heading 2.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 0a1a4ffb4f87adff7fbbbc60202b6a0e42fedd0c
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2018-08-08_23:17:46
Locale: en-US (de_DE); Calc: CL

I changed the summary, because I think "chapter numbering" is more adequate.

I can reproduce it back to

LibreOffice 3.3.0 
OOO330m19 (Build:6)
tag libreoffice-

Anyway, it's difficult to analyze this bug if there are not steps to reproduce it from scratch...

Congrats to reporter that confused two experienced QAs :)

We see:
        1.1  Subchapter 1 (list style WWNum2 with spaces)
Some text.
1.1  Subchapter 2 (list style Bullet -)

That should give a hunt something is not right, two 1.1.
Go to List Styles and see they are different.

I cannot says how this was created but this document's numbering is wrong. 
I'll close as not LO bug.

Note: if we have steps to create similar situation and use case where this can happen, that may be a bug, if not already reported.
