Description Gordo 2015-03-21 16:29:56 UTC
1. New Text Document.
2. Type “test”, Return, “another test”, and Return.
3. Place cursor after “test” on first line.
4. Insert → Footnote/Endnote and accept default.
5. In footnote, type “You can have a numbered list in a footnote:” and Return.
6. Still in footnote, type “test”, Return, and “test 2”.
7. Select “test” and “test 2”.
8. Numbering On from toolbar.
9. Place cursor after “test” on second line.
10. Insert → Footnote/Endnote and accept default.
11. In footnote, type “But the first line of this footnote was included in the selection when converting to a numbered list:” and Return.
12. Still in footnote, type “another test”, Return, and “another test 2”.
13. Select all three lines in second footnote.
14. Numbering On from toolbar.
Note:
Numbering continues on from last footnote and includes the second footnote number as if it is number 3.  Footnote number is okay but indented.
15. Place cursor on first line of second footnote.
16. Numbering Off from toolbar.
Note:
Footnote number is no longer indented.  Numbering continues on from last footnote.
Result:
If the user is not paying attention then they could find themselves in a muddle.

It is also possible to Move Up one of the numbered items from one footnote to another.
1. Place cursor in second footnote in first numbered item--”another test”.
2. Click Move Up from toolbar.
At this point you can use Move Down, but if you start in the first footnote and place the cursor in the last numbered item, then Move Down doesn't do anything.

Summary:
In a footnote, it is not possible to have a numbered list starting on the first line.  Doing so indents the footnote number.

Footnotes be thinking they special and have boundaries, but bullets and numbering be like, "you ain't all that, you're still one of us."

Reproduced. Could hear the voices of the numbering and that was the literal transcription.

This is inherited from OpenOffice.org.
In 3.3.0 the indent behavior of the first line is different, but starting a list there fails too
