Paragraph styles in lists

Hi.
I must be missing something obvious, but how do I apply to/retain a
paragraph style to a list.
I have defined a paragraph style I want and a list style I want but when
I apply the list style to the paragraph the paragraph style looses the
setting for "After text".

I can re-apply the setting with direct formatting (right click -
paragraph) but that defeats the purpose of using styles.

List styles get control over left indent, overwriting any value set by the
paragraph style, so if for any reason you want to keep the indent of the
paragraph style you need to modify the list style to mimic that indent.
I've wrote an article about alignment on lists here

Re: Paragraph styles in lists

Thanks, nice article.
It is the right indent that I am having trouble with, referred to as
"After text" in paragraph style.

You miss nothing. It is bug
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83532

Besides that, if you want to bind paragraph and list together, then
select the list style in the Numbering tab of the paragraph style dialog.

Kind regards
Regina

Thanks Regina. I have bound paragraph and list together as you suggest,
but that is not a fix for the bug. I searched in bugzilla first but my
search did not find this bug.

Ups! Mental note: "do not try to answer complex questions after midnight."
