Steps to reproduce the problem:
1- Set the language for a document to Spanish
2- Start a numbered list with more than 15 lines
3- Edit the list properties to change from numbers (1,2,3) to characters (a, b,
After item n comes item o
What should happen:
Because Spanish alphabet have 27 characters (ch and ll, being digraphs, must not be used on lists) with ñ between n and o, the list on
a Spanish document should use the Spanish alphabet.
The "Real academia española", the maximun authority on Spanish language, have a
service to ask linguistic questions here:
(under "consultas lingüisticas"). I asked them the question is it is
proper to use the ñ or not on lists.
In a nutshell (their complete answer, with English translation, at the end of
this report) is:
The use of the ñ is perfectly valid. ch and ll should be avoided because they
are digraphs. If the document must be sent outside Spanish area the
international alphabet is then appropriate, but the user have the right to
select to use the ñ or not.
In this case, having a new entry on the lists types will be useful
En la creación de esquemas o en la ordenación de epígrafes con letras se
prescinde de la ch y la ll precisamente por ser dígrafos o conjuntos de dos
letras. En principio, no hay problema alguno en utilizar la ñ, dado que es una
letra del alfabeto español. Se puede optar por el criterio que prefiera siempre
que este se mantenga coherentemente en todo el trabajo. Ahora bien, si una
publicación va a tener difusión fuera del ámbito español sería preferible
utilizar solo las letras del alfabeto internacional, que no incluye la ñ.
In the creation of schemes or arrangements of epigraphs with letters one does
without the ch and the ll precisely for being digraphs or sets of two letters.
In principle, there is no problem in using ñ, because it is a letter of the
Spanish alphabet. It is possible to choose any criterion you prefers providing
that this one is kept coherent in all the work. Now then, if a publication is
going to have diffusion outside of the Spanish area it would be preferable to
use only the letters of the international alphabet, which does not include the
BTW: on a side note, on the last years I had the opportunity to visit several
theatres on the north of Italy. On all those theatres the rows are "numbered" with letters... of the Italian alphabet: no trace of j, k, w, x or y.
So I think the problem is not only with Spanish.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
The feature requested is not implemented on 3.5 beta2 yet.
RGB: any update with newer version? (last stable version is 4.0.4 for 4.X branch and 3.6.6 for 3.6 branch)
Adolfo: you might be intested in this one.
Please read this message in its entirety before responding.
Your bug was confirmed at least 1 year ago and has not had any activity on it for over a year. Your bug is still set to NEW which means that it is open and confirmed. It would be nice to have the bug confirmed on a newer version than the version reported in the original report to know that the bug is still present -- sometimes a bug is inadvertently fixed over time and just never closed.
If you have time please do the following:
1) Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (preferably 4.2 or newer).
2) If it is present please leave a comment telling us what version of LibreOffice and your operating system.
3) If it is NOT present please set the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment telling us your version and Operating System
Please DO NOT
1) Update the version field
2) Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
3) Set the bug to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

This is not a bug, but rather a feature request, and it is still valid as it has not been rectified/addressed as of LibreOffice 4.4 (Windows 7).
User RGB filed the original bug/request with regard the Spanish alphabet, mentioning other languages too.
The request is essentially for numbered/ordered lists to use the alphabet of the document language or another languag chosen by the user, whether Spanish, Italian or, in my case, Welsh (Cymraeg), as in the example below.
(a) first (a) cyntaf
(b) second (b) ail
(c) third (c) trydydd
(d) fourth (ch) pedwerydd
(e) fifth (d) pumed
(f) sixth (dd) chweched
I wonder if this is something that might be considered an "easy hack" and added here? https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Easy_Hacks
