Description Jaime Velasco Juan 2013-01-21 18:20:23 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

Not sure, I found the problem by chance trying to export a document I had written, but I'm not sure how to trigger the bug again. It seems to have something to do with the use of ljist styles...

I'll attach a sample document that shows the problem, and the same document exported to .doc

Expected result:

Both documents should look the same. The .doc one should look the same in MS Word.

Actual results:

Libreoffice draws a bigger bullet in the .doc version than in the .odt one.

MS Word (2003) breaks the formatting, it looks like it changed the first character in the bulleted line with a new line. It also uses a bigger bullet than the .odt version.


This bug was found in Libreoffice 3.5.4, but it has been confirmed with 4.0.0rc1

Reproducible with - changing version.

@Jaime - just a heads up that Version refers to the oldest version that we see the bug, not the latest that it was tested.

Thanks for reporting!

Marking as:
New (confirmed)
Minor (can theoretically make high quality work harder to achieve)
Low (default for minor, don't see a reason to change this)

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';
