Description Aaron Williams 2011-05-25 18:05:08 UTC
It would be nice if there were a size in between the small and large circle bullets to better match that other word processor.

reopening because RFE
(current pictures are looking rasterized when printed)
Comment 7 sasha.libreoffice 2012-12-03 12:43:01 UTC
or SVG pictures instead of rasters would be even better
Comment 8 Joel Madero 2013-01-29 18:59:00 UTC
Sure, valid enhancement request.

New (confirmed)
Low (not going to affect many users, but relatively easy to do)

Thanks for reporting!

Created attachment 76542 [details]
a few SVG  glyphs (balls, pearls and stars)

glyphs balls, stars and squares.
they're officially sized for 0.15 inches (11points), but they're scalable, and created at about 4 inches so they should look good at much larger sizes. (as long as you like my artwork).
Comment 10 sasha.libreoffice 2013-03-15 11:42:05 UTC
Thanks! They are looking very well!
Comment 11 A (Andy) 2013-05-04 10:24:13 UTC
-> increased the importance:
I think an option to have more sizes would be really important.  I experience this very often in the daily work (e.g. dots: the small one is too small for me and the large one too large).

Therefore, I agree that it would be really good to have more bullet sizes (e.g. a size in between the small and large dot).  This should also apply to the graphics bullets.

See also Bug Report 57337: It would be good to have more bullets and numbering options and a general customizing option.

In this respect, maybe it is also possible to add some more graphic bullets options as in Stephen's proposal?  Even though some of Stephen's proposals are in the meantime already available in LO in a similar form, some are also nice and not yet in LO available.

@Stephen: Regarding the copyright: Are these your own made proposals?

@Miklós: Could the in this bug report mentioned issue maybe be something for you?

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise

Changing priority back to 'medium' since the number of duplicates is lower than 5
