Description Frédéric Buclin 2011-04-13 13:31:46 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new text document.
2. On the first line, just type some text.
3. On the second line, start the numbering, and add some text.
4. On the third line, the numbering is automatically set to "2.". Add some text.
5. Now you want to also include the numbering for the first line. So you click anywhere in the first line and click the "numbering" button.

=> Both the first and second lines start with "1.". The second line should have been incremented to "2." and the third line to "3.".

This is more an enhancement request; you can never predict what the user exactly wanted, just guess that he/she wanted to extend the numbering.

Comment 9 Justin L 2017-01-20 06:14:08 UTC
Tested with LibO 5.3 beta2 and steps to reproduce in comment 0 are still valid
to reproduce the issue.

Of course, selecting all three, turning off numbering and turning it back on "fixes" the issue. Very little incentive (low priority) to touch this and risk all kinds of problems, and nobody else included in the CC list after many years.

This doesn't seem like a problem, as Justin noticed. 
But, for me problem is another step:
6. go to 2nd line and right-click "Continue previous numbering"

=> 2nd line is 2. (OK) but 3rd line is 1. instead od 3. (NOK)

I confirm this with and I also think, that this is a bug.
