Currently, in the "Bullets and Numbering" dialog box (Menu / Format / Bullets and Numbering), it is very hard to visualy see which of the options are selected in the "Bullets" and "Numbering type" tabs.
Suggested solution: Thicker border around the selected item and/or background color change.

Thanks for the issue Hans. I agree that this may be improved. Set to New
The selection borders look nice and thick to me (Ubuntu 14.04, lxde), and have done going back to at least LibreOffice 4.0. I don't see anything like what happens in the attached image.
Could you describe what distribution/desktop you're using and if there's anything special about how it's set up? Thanks
Setting -> NEEDINFO
Yeah, plain old Ubuntu displays the selection very clearly.
This certainly looks distro/DE specific.
If you reveal your setup, I can install it on a VM and test.

screen shot situation in 4412
For me in 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu, the lines are vague as shown in the first attachments
(it even does not has the proper selection..)
Problem still persists for LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus, running under Unity. However, the theme is not the default as when I originally reported this bug report, but it is 'Arc' now, Looks like the problem is not theme related.
Details of the build:

From what I see in Windows, OO to LO 6.3+, this bug description wasn't correct.
So I change the title to "Previous selection of "Bullets and Numbering" type lost if dialog opened again"
1. open Writer, type a few lines and select some
2. open Format - Bullets and Numbering.. and on Bullets tab select some item (not the first), note the thick border
3. OK to accept and close dialog
4. with the same selection, open again Format - Bullets and Numbering..
Expected: proper Bullets selection with thick border
Experienced: the first item looks selected with thin border
Note: similar issue with Numbering.
