Problem description: 

Few versions ago (not sure exactly which one) there were an option to punctuate like this:
1. *******
 1.1. ******
 1.2. ******
  1.2.1. *******

Instead of this, now it is only possible to punctuate like this:

1. *******
 1. ******
  1. ******
   1.1.1. *******

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Punctuation Menu (which is showed in attachment)

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

screenshot of "Outline" tab

In a freshly downloaded LibO (Win7), the command "Format/Bullets and numbering" shows as in attached screenshot. It's OK.
Comment 2 Marcin 2014-01-16 11:58:09 UTC
After reinstalling it looks a little bit better, but still doesn't work properly.

More details in Screenshot-2.

I admit being puzzled by the outline/list layout. I try to analyse deeper then I'll come back to you.

I had some issues with adding this attachment, but if you add extension .odt it should work just fine.

Sorry for the caused problems.
Comment 12 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-01-24 05:37:54 UTC
Your test document is strangely designed. You can do what you want by using the Option tab in the numbering dialog, you need to choose the number of sublevels to be shown.

If my understanding of your problem is wrong, please describe step by step (mouse click by mouse click) how to reproduce the problem.

Best regards. JBF

The problem is that it isn't working even with the simplest documents. Example is in attachment. I've just opened LibreOffice->f12->outline->(4th at the top option of formating.

I don't know if it can help you, but it is the way that Libreoffice looks like at my computer.
Comment 15 Dominique Boutry 2014-02-07 10:52:07 UTC
I can't manage to exhibit a "mouse click by mouse click" on how to reproduce the problem, because the "bullet&numbering/Outline tab" is incoherent:
- once the dialog box is opened, this tab is immutable, it acts as a palet; however, it isn't populated the same way at each opening of the dialog box; it doesn't seem to depend on the selection at this time, I can't figure what it depends on ; it looks ERRATIC,
- more severe, as a palet (like "Bullets", "Numbering type" and "Image" tabs) it is supposed to populate the ten positions manageable in the "Position" and "Options" tabs (explicitely for the five first; the five last being logically the fifth whis growing indentation); however it is not always the case. Here too I can't figure what it depends on ; it looks ERRATIC.

Once the behaviour of this tab will be fixed, I propose you to have a glance at the monograph I wrote on this subject, at "http://www.odfauthors.org/libreoffice/english/how-tos-tutorials/monograph-1-en-lists-and-titles/view".

To make a wall brilliant, it is not sufficient to repaint it again and again, one sometimes need to scour it. I'm a little bit angry, it will blow over...

Hi, I can confirm that the numbering doesn't reflect the choice in the dialog box, the numbering shows :
1. First level
  1. Sublevel
when it should be
1. First level
  1.1 Sublevel
Using version (Debian) and (Ubuntu). 
Also the dialog changes once you've selected a numbering, to reproduce:
- open a new Writer document
- do not add anything and select Format > Bullet and numbering > Outline have a look at the last view in the first row (it's identical to Marcin's joined screenshot dialog after reinstalling)
- click ok, add two or three numbered lines
- click on the bullet properties icon, you'll see that the display is now different (I'll join a screenshot).
Set as new, change OS, Sophie
