Description Adam CloudOn 2013-07-03 07:48:48 UTC
Created attachment 81942 [details]
DOCX containing line numbers

Problem description: 
When loading a DOCX with 'line numbers' and saving back to a NEW.DOCX - after loading in Word the 'start value' of the line numbering changes, and line numbering looks different.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load the attached DOCX in LO
2. Save as NEW.DOCX
3. Load the NEW.DOCX in Word
4. The line numbering has changed (specifically the 'start value' setting)

Current behavior:
LO changes the line numbering information that is being exported.

Expected behavior:
LO should export the line numbering information correctly back to DOCX.
Operating System: All
Version: Master

Should be. I can't remember if it was totally fixed, or partially fixed.. would be great if you could check it out. :)

Well, I actually don't know it's fixed or not. As already mentioned in another bug with the same test document: opening the original document in Word (for Mac 2011) result in a number 3 on the second line ("this is the second line."). Rountrip it in LibreOffice and open it on Word result in same behavior (number 3 on the second line). So, is it fixed or not :)? /me don't know.

Kind regards,
