Description Francisco 2015-06-19 00:45:39 UTC
It is not possible to set the type of bullet for a paragraph style within the "Shape style dialog". This happens in Draw, and by extension, to Impress. However, style dialogues for exclusive presentation text boxes (Title, Subtitle, Outline #) have a "Bullet" tab.

Steps:
1) Create a new ODG document
2) Modify or create a new shape style.
2b) In the "Organizer" tab, the "Contains" section already shows a type of bullet
3) Try to edit the bullet style used in this dialog

Result:
It is not possible, because the corresponding tab doesn't appear

Expected:
It should be possible to edit the bullet style of a shape.

Is the dialog like that in 4.4, too?
I can't see any style with those bullets in Contains.

Images styles dialog

Hi, I don't understand what you mean but I'm uploading a screenshot of the problem done with LibO 4.4. However, I think this is inherited from OOo.

There, you can see the dialog for the Default style for a shape in Draw. It has already assigned a default bullet (black thick dot). However, it is not possible to edit the bullet assigned to the Default style: the tab with the bullet format is missing.

Ok, sorry I was looking at all the other styles except default.

No further input from UX needed. "Bullets and Numbering" is available to text fields from the main menu and taken into new styles per "New from selection" but shown as big dot and not editable.
Comment 5 Regina Henschel 2019-02-25 13:18:13 UTC
The current implementation is weak. The graphic properties may contain a list style. LibreOffice writes such list style into the graphic properties, but it does not use it. Instead it handles the list style as direct (automatic) style of the single shape. And even "clear direct formatting" does not remove it. And manually removing the direct style and setting the list style name of the graphic properties instead, does not work. LibreOffice does not use it, but falls back to its default list style then.
