Writer: Using “spell out” chapter numbering styles

Hi,

I have been trying to experiment with the "spell out" numbering styles
in Writer. To setup my document, I went to Tools -> Chapter Numbering,
and selected "One, two, three..." for Numbering with Heading 1 at level
1, and "First, Second, Third" for Numbering with Heading 2 at level 2.
I then went to an empty document, set the style of the first line to
"Heading 1", and the style of the second line to "Heading 2". My
document now looks like this:

1<tab>Some text here
Ordinal-number 1<tab>Some text here

I was expecting something more along the lines of:

One<tab>Some text here
First<tab>Some text here

The same seems to be happening with the page numbering (Style -> Page
tab -> page Number), where I still get numbered page numbers as opposed
to "spelled out" page numbers.

My defaut LANG setting is fr_CA.utf8, and the behavior is exactly the
same with en_US.utf8, or just "C". Running LO 6.1.2.1 on Fedora 27,
downloaded from the LO site.

What am I missing?

Thank you in advance for any information.

Rémy.

On Linux Mint, using LibreOffice 6.1.2.1 from the LibreOffice PPA, I get
what you expect:
   One Some text here
   First Some text here

If I change the document language (Tools > Language > For All Text) to
French, the numbering text changes to French:
   Un Some text here
   Premier Some text here
(I don't understand much French, but that looks about right to me)

Also works for Greek, even though I don't have a Greek language pack
installed (no spellchecking available):
   Ένα Some text here
   Πρώτος Some text here
(I assume the text is correct!)

But for some other languages (e.g. Gaelic), I do get what you're seeing:
   1 Some text here
   Ordinal 1 Some text here

For me, page numbering also works as you expect, the same as chapter
numbering.

I'm on Linux Mint, using LibreOffice 6.1.2.1 from the LibreOffice PPA.
LANG is en_GB.UTF-8.

Sorry, I can't see anything obvious, other than the difference in
distro. As far as I know, the PPA version is based on unmodified
LibreOffice sources, but maybe there's something included in the PPA
packages but not the RPMs which makes it work for me. Perhaps someone
else will have some suggestions...

There is a problem with the official builds on Linux. See

I confirm that it works with openSUSE Leap builds too.
