Description Mirosław Zalewski 2014-09-16 20:23:06 UTC
It seems that Writer does not consider "Numbering style" part of direct formatting. When paragraph formatting is reverted to style's default, "Numbering style" is not changed.

== Steps to reproduce ==

1. Open new Writer document
2. Type in some words
3. While cursor is on existing paragraph, choose Format → Paragraph...
4. Go to "Outline & Numbering" tab
5. Change "Numbering style" from "None" to "Numbering 1". Click "OK". Paragraph should be now numbered.
6. Select entire paragraph (Ctrl+A) and choose Format → Clear Direct Formatting

== Expected results ==

Paragraph is no longer numbered. "Numbering style" setting in Paragraph options is reverted to default value, "None".

== Actual results ==

Paragraph remains numbered. "Numbering style" setting remains "Numbering 1".

== Additional info ==

I am pretty confident that this issue was not present in 4.1.x and 3.6.x lines, so it probably might be bibisected.
I only tested on Debian amd64, LibreOffice 4.2.6 final release; sorry about that.

From what I know, the displayed paragraph is a result of paragraph style and applied numbering/bullets. Probably from ODF specifications.
That would make the notice behaviour as expected..
Need to ask a dev, or dive into specs?
