Description Gordo 2015-04-29 16:34:39 UTC
1. New Text Document.
2. Type “This is a test:” and Enter.
3. Type “test1”, Enter, “test2”, Enter, “test3”, and Enter.
4. Type “end of test.” and Enter.
5. Select “test1”, “test2”, and “test3”.
6. Numbering on from toolbar.
7. Place cursor after “test3” and select everything up to the end of the first line.
8. Ctrl + x (cut).
9. Ctrl + v (paste).
The numbering for “test3” has disappeared.
Expected Result:
Numbering is preserved.

10. Undo the cut and paste.
11. Place cursor at the beginning of line 4 and select everything up to the end of the first line.
12. Ctrl + x (cut).
13. Ctrl + v (paste).
Numbering is preserved.

14. Undo the cut and paste.
15. Select the three lines of the numbered list.
16. Ctrl + x (cut).
17. Place cursor at the end of the first line and Ctrl + v (paste).
The first line takes on the formatting of the destination paragraph.  The last line “test3” loses its formatting and an empty numbered paragraph has been inserted.  I think this can be explained by the fact that after the cut there is an empty numbered paragraph.  On pasting, this is moved down and renumbered.

If you select just the numbered list and cut and paste it to the end of a different paragraph then the first line takes on the formatting of the destination paragraph and the last line loses its formatting, but no empty numbered paragraph is present as explained above.

Comment 1 Buovjaga 2015-04-29 19:03:09 UTC
Reproduced steps 1-9 on LibO 5.0
10-13: if line 4 is understood to be "end of test.", I get the same result.
Reproduced steps 14-17 more or less. In preparation, I set the first line as bold and test 3 as italic. test1 became bold and test3 became bold italic.

On 3.5.0, steps 14-17 were the only ones I could reproduce.
Adding a bibisect request for the other steps.

Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2015-08-14 03:33:39 UTC
The first issue seems to have begun at source-hash-ce97851773a06103504972eb2771eecd7dd81e36 in bibisect 43all, i.e. the source range


Unfortunately this is a massive range, and also too old to readily build manually.

The only thing in the range that looks obviously somewhat relevant at a quick grep is

    Revert "Removed list and numbering paragraph styles and related option page"
    This reverts commits 359d0fbd03a68d9131e8fb25e7dac9f19ddf6dcb,
    6a15a2898b7f822ddfba23553dd127e25af15fff and
    This change is not mature enought: needs more work

Probably at this point, this bug would need investigating directly with reference to the current code.
