A document to reproduce this issue

Steps to reproduce:
1. In the attached document, do "Select All" and then copy (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C).
2. Place the cursor after "Bullet 3".
2. Press the return key ("Enter") twice, to get a new line.
3. Paste (Ctrl+V).

Current behavior:
The heading is indented a few times, and a bullet is before it. It is not possible to decrease the indent level and remove the bullet.
Note that the actual indentation level and bullet style depends on the heading style ("Heading 1", "Heading 2", etc.).

Expected behavior:
Text format should be preserved after pasting.
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: release

You can do it in two ways :)

On the line,
 - choose Format > > Paragraph, tab Overview, section Numbering and choose None for Style for numbering
 - just hit Ctrl+Shft+F12

Having said that: it's behaviour that I would not expect.
Also: it is already present in the frist LibreOffice version I have..

But set to New

Still open in v4.2.4.2

The Problem is, that after the second RETURN, the new line has no bullet style anymore and the bullet indicator is set to false.

Even if you press RETURN more often before pasting, the heading still get the bullet style.

Where dose this information came from? Is there a more general problem with pasting and styles? There are several other bug reports according to pasting and unexpected styles.

In duplicated bug were steps to create unbulleted heading inside bullets: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135289#c4
If copied in selection from bullet to bullet, Heading without bullet inherits bullet upon paste in same file.

(In reply to Justin L from comment #15)
> This will be related to chapter numbering
Wrong. It happened with any grouping of numbered styles. This can be fixed in DocumentContentsManager.cxx's CopyImplImpl
-  if ( !pTextNd || !pTextNd->IsInList() )
+  if ( !pTextNd || !pTextNd->IsInList() || pTextNd->GetListId() != pEndTextNd->GetListId() )

But I don't know the implications of doing this. The OOo bug report related to this isn't terribly clear about what "right" and "wrong" behaviour is.

I'm not clear on the difference between NumRule and ListId, so not sure which is a better equality test.
