Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-05-25 09:12:58 UTC
Created attachment 47153 [details]
document with list and screenshot of itsown, Writer not loads size of number

To reproduce this problem:
0. Start Writer with new empty document
1. Enter 3 paragraphs of text (suppose size of font is 14)
2. Select all text and press F12(numbers appears)
3. Select entire second string(paragraph) and set font size to 26.
4. Select the same string all except first character and set font size to 14
5. Delete first character
Number of line now size 26 and text in line size 14.
6. Save document
7. Reload
Number of second line becomes size 14 (size of number is not saved in document)

I compared this behavior to MSWord 2003. It behaves exactly the same, except that saves size of number. Such file is in attachment.

LibreOffice not loads size of number from doc file.

The same situation with bullet list

reproduced on LibO 3.4 rc 1 on Mandriva 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit

It's only a problem by saving in doc-format.

Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2011-12-25 07:43:10 UTC
reproduced on LibO 3.5.0 beta 1
file saved in odt format and after reloading it becomes different
Comment 4 A (Andy) 2013-04-27 17:56:22 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit) with odt and doc file

Note: I have inserted three paragraphs and I changed the font size in the second paragraph.  If I open afterwards the doc file in MSO 2007 then the number 3 has a smaller font size, while the rest of the text has the font size 14.

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
