Description Jan-Marek Glogowski 2019-12-06 12:36:42 UTC
This is about the editing part of bug 120546. Just check bug 120546 comment 9 and follow up entries. It has a lot of details about this problem, so I won't replicate everything here. I'll just quoting a paragraph of the commit message from that fix, like a summary of this bug:

This special DOCX override mode is enabled by the import filter setting DocumentSettingId::APPLY_PARAGRAPH_MARK_FORMAT_TO_NUMBERING to true. This should also change the edit mode, so that a change of the entry doesn't modify the rule, but the override and this must also be reflected in the GUI character settings.

The "remove direct formatting" entry is available in the context menu and works. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a DOCX with directly formatted bullet points
2. Move the cursor in front of the bullet point

Actual Results:
The GUI shows the formatting of the underlying number rule style, like font name and size. Changing that doesn't change the bullet point visually, if these entries are overridden.

Expected Results:
The GUI shows the formatting of the overriden charater style, like font name and size. Changing these also changes the bullet point. Removing direct formatting correctly works.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

This sounds pretty much like bug #97899 and still the case with

Testing this again with attachment 122680 [details] from bug 97899 after it was fixed:

- Selecting the numbering such as before the "First with numbering" paragraph shows Calibri 11 instead of TNR 12 (still incorrect, this is the para style formatting instead of the direct formatting)
- Changing numbering formatting such as font color, size, font type, underline is now applied in the document (works now as result of the fix to bug 97899)
- Undoing these changes does NOT work
- Right click - Clear Direct Formatting command does NOT work, above changes are not removed, only direct formatting on the paragraph (this did not change)

Dear Jan-Marek Glogowski,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
