Description Martin 2015-05-10 15:52:18 UTC
Create style from selection does not retain the proper indention settings. Auto update style doesn't work. Applying the newly created style does not apply correct indention settings to selection. Some style attributes are set others not. Although style is applied consistently.

Hi JB,

Since styles don't work reliably in I have switched to LO5alpha1. The bespoke issues are still present. ie:

Paragraph indent setting changes are not propagated correctly with corresponding style they seem to be part of direct formatting. The same is true for numbered and bulleted lists and possibly others. (I personally think ALL paragraph settings except direct formatting should be part of the style.) 

Furthermore, applying new paragraph indent settings to style with autoupdate enabled propagates correctly to paragraph with same style but NOT to the style selected. See test case: 

Select first header 1 style in document. Right click mouse open paragraph window, change indent settings. 
>> SECOND header 1 paragraph is changed correctly FIRST header 1 style is NOT changed.

As a result style handling gets messed up and becomes useless...

I reproduce on windows 7/64 & Version:
Build ID: 88805f81e9fe61362df02b9941de8e38a9b5fd16
Locale: fr_FR

Also reproduced with Version:
Build ID: 0a16c3dda4150008d9be6f24cbd15ac198d116d3
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR)

Steps to reproduce:
1. File> New> Text Document
2. Type Heading1<Enter>Heading1<Enter>

Expected & actual results: 2 paragraphs with text "Heading1"

3. Edit> Select All
4. Ctrl+1 (or apply Heading1, paragraph style from style window)
5. Right click> Edit Paragraph Style, Organizer tab, check AutoUpdate, OK
6. Un-select all, right click first paragraph> Paragraph
7. "Indent & Spacing" tab, Before text: -2, Ok

Expected result: two paragraph apply same indent.
Actual result: only the second paragaph applies indent.

I set status to New and update summary (change "Create" for "Update")
