Description vginesta 2013-07-20 10:20:26 UTC
I would like libreoffice Impress not to draw a bullet when I leave an intentional blank space.

In PowerPoint when working with bullets, these are not drawn after hitting return, but only when you start typing.

I know that with shift plus return this is partly solved but it is not very intuitive and straighfordward.

I aprecciate your help.

Thank you very much.
Vicente Ginesta.

Hi Vincente,

Thanks for writing this request. I set some of the fields, so that it caqn be easily tracked.

It would be great that while hitting the return button to space, you could still see a light grey bullet that does not leave a mark (like in PowerPoint). This way it would let you know that you are still on bullets mode.
The bullet would turn black, the moment you started typing.

If these changes are accepted, could you give an estimate about when will they be implemented?

Thank you very much.

Currently the "save as" export to PPTX and PPT enforces this behavior(bullets are removed from empty lines). Implementing this feature in the UI would prevent some confusion. See Bug 90607

I would agree that this would be good.

This is actually the same as bug 57585, isn't it?
