Draw + text box + bullets

I was just using draw and had to do a numbered and bulletted list and
noticed that these are not properly justified. I mean to say that, if
the text line is longer in bullet form, the text scrolls to underneath
the bullet. Is this normal behaviour? It does not do this in Writer.

Re: Draw + text box + bullets

Same behaviour for me, I don't know if it's normal...

Thanks Stefano

I believe in normal bulletted and numbered form, the text does not
scroll beneath the bullet or number. It is justified in a nicely
formatted text "box". I would believe that this should also be the same
in Draw.

Perhaps this shouldn't be necessary (perhaps it should be the default
behaviour) but (in *Draw*), select the entire list and then

- Go to Format>Bullets and Numbering
- Select the Position tab
- Select Level 1
- Increase the "Width of Numbering" from zero to anything you like the look
of
- Click OK

The second (and subsequent) line(s) of a long bullet point will now justify
under the beginning of the *text* of the first line instead of under its
bullet.

It mght be possible to increase the "Width of Numbering" in the default
template for Draw so that it is always available but I haven't tried.

Thanks Harold.

I wonder if it could be made as default. I can't imagine many people not
wanting it to behave this way right from the start. I can only say that
it would frustrate most of the people I know who would have to do all of
these extra steps to get to by today's expected behaviour.

IMO, all six modules should behave the same way as to not confuse users
unecessarily. (Writer, Calc, Empress, Draw, Math, Base).

Cheers

Marc

I agree. Perhaps you should enter a bug report.

Thanks Stefano and Harold.

I've submitted it as a bug after checking to see if it had already been
submitted. You can find it here:
