Description Robert Großkopf 2014-01-08 21:06:33 UTC
Created attachment 91707 [details]
Examplefile for resetting direct fomatting.

Open the attached document:
1. Press Ctrl+A to select all content.
2. Press Ctrl+M to reset direct formatting.
3. Save the document.
4. Close the document and reopen it.
All "Text"-formatted paragraphs will be changed to "Default" paragraphs, when there has been added Bullets (Shift+F12) or Numbering (F12).

It is the same behavior in all LO-Versions from LO 3.3.0beta1 up to LO 4.2.0rc2

Hi Robert,

I don´t understand, what do You mean with "All "Text"-formatted paragraphs will be changed to "Default" paragraphs, when there has been added Bullets (Shift+F12) or Numbering (F12)."

E.g. what are the single steps? Or: what happen when You do what? What do You expect respectively wich behavior is correct respectively wrong?

Hi Jochen,

I have changed the type of the attachment. The default is "text", now it's application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text - which shows a Writer-document.

Following steps:

Write some text in Writer.
Set a format to this text, for example "Text" (not: "Default Style")
Add a bullet or numbering to the paragraph. Shows now a text with bullet, formatted as "Text".
Select the content and reset direct formatting.
Seems there has been nothing reset (because you haven't formated anything in a direct way, only with the styles of the paragraph).
Close this document and reopen. The paragraph is now formatted as "Default Style".

This is probably a duplicate of bug 47471, and attachment 133726 [details] from bug 108248 is also helpful here.
