In the latest OpenOffice, the selections under Format / Bullets and Numbering are all solid options.
But what if you want to print out a to-do list and then give it to an employee to check off?
There used to be a box outline to do this, but it has been replaced by a solid box. That is not a good idea.
Bring back the empty box!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a document
2. select format / bullets
3. look in vain for an empty box
As stated above
The empty box you used to have.
User Profile Reset: Yes
OpenGL enabled: Yes
This is a regression.

Do you remember the version of LO. I've checked back to LO 5.4.7, but couldn't find it. So perhaps indeed an enhancement request and not a regression. I support the idea, although an empty box for a checklist is something different than a bullet.
cc: Desing-Team for further input
I can't honestly say when I last used the check box, or where, so enhancement it is.
You are right, checkbox and bullet list are different. Presumably one could type in something into a real checkbox, but I never used mine for anything other than checking off on a paper copy.
I'd be happy with just an empty square.
See no need for this.
Default bullets for the GUI are drawn from OpenSymbol font.
Though we do need a little tweak there to move some PUA glyphs onto their correct Unicode point:
E00C -> U+25C6 BLACK DIAMOND
E00A -> U+25A0 BLACK SQUARE
And helpful would be the addition of a OpenSymbol appropriate glyph for U+2610 BALLOT BOX
Otherwise, U+25CB WHITE CIRCLE is available to assign as a bullet via the customize. While any of:
U+25A1 WHITE SQUARE - □
U+274F LOWER RIGHT DROP-SHADOWED WHITE SQUARE - ❏
U+2750 UPPER RIGHT DROP-SHADOWED WHITE SQUARE - ❐
U+2751 LOWER RIGHT SHADOWED WHITE SQUARE - ❑
U+2752 UPPER RIGHT SHADOWED WHITE SQUARE - ❒
Are available from the OpenSymbol font to assign to a bullet listing--though the customization allows a selection from any font to be used as a bullet.
