Description Clemens Eisserer 2013-02-09 17:20:55 UTC
Created attachment 74496 [details]
demo file

When pasting text into a bullet-list, the line which gets the text pasted in, looses it's bullet.

Steps required to reproduce:
- Open the attached example presentation
- Navigate cursor to the bullet list
- Press enter to start a new line
- The new line has a bullet on the left
- Copy&Paste some text into that line -> Bullet is removed. Even pressing the "Bullets On/Off"-toolbar button does not restore the bullet.

I've created a screencast which illustrates the issue using the attached testcase:

As shown in the video, strange things happen when pressing the "Bullets On/Off" toolbar button.

Thanks for reporting!
I can reproduce this behavior using your attached file using Linux Mint 14 x64 and Libreoffice rc3.
There is something quite wrong with the bullets lists when exporting/importing to LibreOffice (Impress). 
The bullets aren't 'filled' anymore (it's now a strange non-filled rectangle). But this behavior is already mentioned/filed in Bug 59932.

Kind regards,

Not a bug for me. The copied text is pasted with its style. If you want to keep the bullet you only have to paste the text without formatting. Use ctrl+maj+V instead of ctrl+V.

Closing as NotABug. Please, feel free to reopen if you disagree.

Best regards. JBF
