Description Jared M 2013-01-25 19:34:09 UTC
In Writer, saving a document in the DocBook format does incorrect conversion of bulleted (unordered) lists. They should get the DocBook tag <itemizedlist> but instead they get <orderedlist>.

Given that bullet lists are pretty basic formatting, I think this is an important issue to fix.

To reproduce: create a simple document with bullet list. Save as DocBook. View the resulting XML.

Hi Jared,

can you please provide a test document so this can be tested against and subsequently be confirmed.

Setting to NEEDINFO until more detail is provided.

After providing the requested info, please reset this bug to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks :)

The attachment 67763 [details] from bug 55382 can be used as an example. It is a simple unordered list which does indeed receive the indicated <orderedlist> element when saved to DocBook format. As indicated in that bug the export filter has always done this. This is also Apache issue 102857 (added to See Also list).

Status set to UNCONFIRMED. Version set to Inherited From OOo. Platform set to All/All. Edited summary for clarity as this is not an "export" but rather a "save as" function.

As per comment #2. Confirmed. Status set to NEW.

Dear Jared M,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
