Description Eyal Rozenberg 2022-03-20 22:12:59 UTC
Created attachment 178997 [details]
A document exhibiting the bug

Consider the attached document. It has 3 Heading 1 paragraphs, two of which have paragraphs whose outline level is 2 (but they are not Heading 2).

Now, open Navigator in this document. Set the maximum outline level (the H menubutton) to 1, then to 2. You will see only the first two Heading 1 paragraphs in the content tree, one of them with a level 2 item below it. Now switch the maximum outline level back to 1; all three H1 items now appear.

The third H1 item being missing is a fragile state. An edit within it might bring it back to the tree; but then if you switch to max level 2 and back to max level 1 again, it will be gone again.

Note: I don't know that this bug has anything to do with RTL vs RTL, but it might. I encountered it in an RTL document I had imported from .doc format originally.

cc: Jim Rykowski, any ideas?

Additional informations
I've tried to make document more simple:
- deleting section
- changing text direction to LTR
- deleting page breaks

Bug is still present. But what is really weird: I you select als and remove direct formatting, some paragraphs are completely removed

So problem might be document specific. Eyal, could be helpful to add a test document from scratch.
