Description Franklin Weng 2016-03-08 14:56:00 UTC
Created attachment 123403 [details]
ODT file which reported containing error attribute value

Use ODF online validator https://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/

Set to ODF 1.2 (extended conforming), and upload the ODT file (as attachment in this report), the result reported:

Error: attribute "text:start-value" has a bad value: "0" does not satisfy the "positiveInteger" type

This should be a LibreOffice bug.

Comment 4 Regina Henschel 2019-08-11 11:33:08 UTC
The error still exists in Version: (x64)
Build ID: ed882d693f37779e3a09641e7cd43b7a925d2312
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2019-07-25_00:58:18
Locale: de-DE (en_US); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: CL

It is similar to bug 108536. But here the MS Office import filter is involved.
Comment 5 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2019-11-11 14:21:35 UTC
for the record, this is the element:

<text:list-level-style-number text:level="1" text:style-name="WW8Num1z0" style:num-prefix="*" style:num-format="1" text:start-value="0">

so presumably it was created by WW8/RTF/DOCX import.

Dear Franklin Weng,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
