Description Roman Kuznetsov 2020-02-08 13:05:44 UTC
New B&N dialog in Draw has Scope section with "Slide" and "Selection" options. It's strange.

If I understood right, then new B&N dialog for Impress just was copy to Draw also without any optimizations. Draw and Impress are different module anyway and we should make some changes there for Draw case.

First, Draw doesn't has a "Slide" thing. Second, we can create lists only inside some shapes or text boxes (that are shapes too) in Draw, but can't for all page! In Impress we can create lists on slide in special predefined area with own styles.

Possibly we should change Slide label to Shape label and change C++ code there that it works as we want in Draw.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Draw
2. Create a shape
3. Create a some list inside the shape
4. Open B&N dialog from Format->Bulet & Numbering
5. Look at Slide label

Actual Results:
There is a Slide label and I don't know how it works in Draw case

Expected Results:
There is no a Slide label but possibly there is some another variant that works fine for list in Draw case

Reproducible: Always

> Draw and Impress are different module

Technically they are the same, more or less. But different of course from the user perspective and we do use Slide vs. Page everywhere.

You can apply the number format to the current object (text box, shape) or to all objects on the slide/page. And in case of Impress it's possible to change the master, which makes not so much sense for Draw since this master is rather a static background.

So what we should do in case of Draw is
* Change "Slide" to "Page"
* Hide "Apply to Master" button

Seems like a dupe of bug 130069.
