Description Joel Madero 2015-08-21 04:03:28 UTC
Created attachment 118056 [details]

Ubuntu 15.04 x64
LibreOffice 5 (verified on 3.3 as well)

1. Open document;
2. Place cursor at last line (empty line);
3. Toggle on bullets

Observed: Tab stops are completely messed up, cursor goes to the far right outside of the margins;

Expected: Bullets work consistently and look like the bullets above the newly created incorrect ones.
Comment 1 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-08-21 04:45:24 UTC
The indent settings change so that before text is -0.7" and first line is -0.25", when a default bullet should have before text as 0.5".

Comment 2 Rusty Russell 2015-09-08 18:49:31 UTC
Me too.  As per #93557 I wanted to turn off bullets, then TAB didn't indent any more.  I like presentations without bullets, so this is really annoying.

Still so in 6.0+. Not clear why.
