Description Sudipta 2020-11-24 13:52:34 UTC
Description:
Please refer to the navigation - (Tools > Footnotes and Endnotes, the same can be found at Insert > Field > More Fields... > Page).

Bengali language, for which I wish to have the numerals are already supported by Libre Office (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/i18npool/source/localedata/data/bn_IN.xml), but I like to have the same available in the Footnote/Endnote/Page Number/Bullet number as well.

১,২,৩ ...

ক,খ,গ ... 

Please find the Unicode specification for the language- https://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0980.pdf


I can find Hindi numbers in the same options: 

१, २, ३ ...

क, ख, ग ...

Hindi is also supported by Libre Office ( https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/i18npool/source/localedata/data/hi_IN.xml). 
I wish similar options for Bengali language.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Tools > Footnotes and Endnotes 
OR 
Insert > Field > More Fields > Page

Actual Results:
There is no number format in Bengali language

১,২,৩ ...

ক,খ,গ ... 

Expected Results:
There should be number format in Bengali language

১,২,৩ ...

ক,খ,গ ... 


Reproducible: Always

If the Bengali numbers are already supported as an LO NatNumX series for the corresponding locale (I didn't check and don't even know exactly how to check), the code change needed for this seems minimal, see bug 114622 for a similar effort.

@Mike, similar to bug 114622, do you think we could turn this into an easyhack ?
Comment 4 Mike Kaganski 2020-11-30 12:42:31 UTC
(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #3)

Maybe - but note that I didn't review the fix there, only helped in general stuff like writing license statement, filing the patch to gerrit, not modifying unrelated strings. Eike might be the person to ask :-)
