Description Telesto 2022-01-13 19:16:57 UTC
Description:
More numbering/more bullets always opens Customize tab

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Click the 'arrow down' part of Numbered list toggle in toolbar
3. Click more numbering
4. Opens Customize tab

Actual Results:
Customize tab

Expected Results:
Outline numbering & image numbering are also regular used variants. It's not that you by definition want to create a customized variant. 

So maybe set it to the last tab used? Instead of fixed Customize tab.

So maybe simply open the last used.. As mostly happens with the dialogs?

I'd expect _more_ options. So my take is to open at Numbering pr Bullet respectively and not to restore the last tab.

1. The "ordered" (numbering) and "unordered" (bullets) tabs are identical to what is shown in the dropdown box - therefore no value in offering the corresponding tab in response to "More ..."

2. Perhaps "More..." label should become "Customize"  (which would give truth/accuracy in labeling)

True

There are more types of bullet in the dialog (not in the drop down)
* Outline
* Image (bullets)

So this is also incorrect, IMHO

That's why I proposed open the last accessed tab. There is a group who likely prefers having Customize open by default. And others use it to access Outline or Image bullets.

I like the "Customize" idea. To open the last used tab still requires some proper wording and is in-congruent to "More <...>" and "Customize".

And eventually I'd prefer if all Bullets & Numbering dialogs become reworked as done for Impress (Format > B&N...) -> bug 120905.

Code pointer:

The labels are defined in include/svx/strings.hrc as RID_SVXSTR_MOREBULLETS and RID_SVXSTR_MORENUMBERING and assigned to the button in c'tor of NumberingPopup at svx/source/tbxctrls/bulletsnumbering.cxx. I would just remove this code and use a static label in the UI svx/uiconfig/ui/numberingwindow.ui.
