Created attachment 180325 [details]
The example file saved by Writer master

This is split out of bug 148455

When  attachment 179687 [details] is saved as docx and opened in Word, the numbering appears as (..a) instead of the original (a).

1, Open  attachment 179687 [details]
2, Save as DOCX
3, Open the file in Word.

Numbering changes from (a) to (..a) in Word (2013/2016) but not in Writer upon reload.

screenshot of results for 3 versions of LO, DOCX opened in Office 365 Web

I've tried saving attachment 179687 [details] as DOCX with different versions of LO, and opening in Office 365 web:

- with LO 6.4.7.2, I get headings (a) to (e)
- with LO 7.3.3.2, I get headings (1.1.a) to (1.1.e)
- with a recent LO 7.4 build, I get headings (1.1.a) to (1.1.c) then (1.1.a) and (1.1.b) again.

Comment 4 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2022-05-31 07:40:26 UTC
Results are slightly different for me (see attachment 180487 [details]) but setting to NEW as things that should be hidden are now back.
Comment 5 Justin L 2023-05-18 18:58:00 UTC
repro 7.6+
Comment 6 Justin L 2024-05-16 13:32:24 UTC
repro 24.8+  - still looks like comment 4.
Comment 7 Justin L 2024-05-16 18:57:17 UTC
So there are two problems here most likely. So far we have been tracking the export ODT->DOCX bug.

There is also an import bug - LO doesn't import the resulting file in the same bad way.

The import was the same as MSO (showing the dots) starting in 7.0 with

    tdf#116883: sw: support for lists level format string
    
    Multilevel lists are more flexible in case of DOCX. There is
    supported custom format for any level in DOCX unlike in LO
    and ODT where we are limited only with prefix and suffix
    for hardcoded list levels separated by dot. At the same time
    DOCX can have lists not only "1.2.3.4", but "1/2/3/4" or even
    "1!2>3)4" and such format can vary on each list level.

The dots disappeared in the same 7.2.5 commit already mentioned for ODF.
