The display is missing for a fill character of the first tabulator position in a paragraph where a hanging indent was selected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter the letter “A” in an empty paragraph.
2. Add a tab character.
3. Enter the letter “B”.
4. Specify a line break (shift + enter key) for this paragraph.
5. Enter the letter “C”.
6. Configure a single left aligned tab stop at “2 cm” together with a fill character (dash for example).
7. Adjust paragraph properties for a hanging indent.
Example: Value “2 cm” for “Before text” and a value “-2 cm” for “First line”.
Indentation is performed without the display of the selected fill character.
A filling should be displayed in the first line for a known tabulator position in this paragraph.

I confirm it with
Version: 126.96.36.199.alpha0+ (x64)
Build ID: 89f0af144c18efafe2573801641689a1432c0cae

Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-GB
Problem is, that first tab stop is now at 4cm. So I think it's not really a bug, but more a reasonable enhancement request. Solution could be to add a fill character seting to Indents & Spacing tab of th paragraph dialog.
I changed bug title.

Regina, what do you think?
Besides, it would be good to have a test document attached.

A very simple document. Just add a first line indent and see what happens.
Heiko, you changed status from NEW to NEEDINFO. What info do you need?
