Sorry to create another question about this, but I still can't understand.
I have a paragraph, add list numbering to it and then set it Standard style. List numbering remains. I set to clear direct format, numbering remains. I set Standard style again, numbering remains.
Worse: I have a few list styles, if I change the numbering style of 1 of them, it changes them all.
I can't understand how it works. What I think I understood is that list formatting is done separately, by the text:list-style element. But I've copied one of these elements, renamed it, set it to a style:style element, and changes to this style kept changing other styles.
Paragraph Style dialog has no tab for list formating, only option it has is Outline & Numbering tab where I can set another Numbering Style. But as I said that doesn't work because a list style change propagates to other styles that shouldn't be related. And there's no UI to config these numbering styles.
It seems styles are bound in a way I can't understand, even reading styles.xml, and applying a style leaves old formatting behind, which even clearing direct formatting doesn't remove.

Press F11 for styles and formatting dialog. On top there are icons for Paragraph, Character, Numbering, Panel and Page styles. Pick Numbering style. There is your UI to change these styles of create a new one.

I'm having exactly the same problem as Hikari.
I've done what Mahfiaz instructs but the styles are not applying to my document, even if I "clear direct formatting" first.
When I click on the style, the old formatting does not change to the new style.
Is this a bug or am I missing something?
