Description Jean-Paul Garnier 2014-05-27 18:25:51 UTC

Sample file

Platform:
Windows 7 64-Bit
LibreOffice Version: 4.1.6.2 / Build ID: 40ff705089295be5be0aae9b15123f687c05b0a

Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Start a new document
2. Start a bulleted list
3. Type various bullet points, indenting some of them
4. Highlight some of the indented bullet points
5. Save the file as a .doc file
6. Close the file
7. Re-open the file
8. Issue: All of the bullets are now highlighted, and no matter what you do, you can't unhighlight the the bullets, though you can unhighlight the text.

A similar issue also happened where the only difference was that I was applying a strikethrough style to the text instead of doing highlighting.

Sample attached.

Confirmed in Linux Mint in the latest releases from 4.0 to 4.2 and 4.3 beta. This is an fileopen regression issue as opening any of the attached .doc files opens correctly in word 2010 and LibO 3.6.

Regression introduced by 1c22545edf9085b9f2656ca92781158b6b123db3.
I forced SwTxtNode::TryCharSetExpandToNum -http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/source/core/txtnode/thints.cxx#1787 to return false and I couldn't reproduce the issue so I guess this is a good point to start the investigation.

Actually, the work-around I found, is to select the whole series of lines with bullet points, click the bullets icon to withdraw the bullets and then click it again to add new bullets, which are not highllighted this time.
