Revision history [back]

Before I begin, I should make something clear. I am a Microsoft Office power user, but I am still a newbie to LibreOffice (LO 5). That said, I have looked at your file and tested some ideas. Here are my conclusions:

CONCLUSION 1
Bullets are their own style. This is why you cannot expect them to follow your custom paragraph style.

CONCLUSION 2
You can adjust the right-margin stop on the ruler, or more granularly adjust the paragraph formatting properties to indent the right margin of the bullet.

CONCLUSION 3
You can select a group of bullets and adjust the right-margin stop for the selection. However, new bullet list items either appended or inserted will not retain the right-margin stop setting.

CONCLUSION 4
You can create a custom list style with the desired right-margin stop and apply it to the new bullet items. However, the new setting for the right-margin stop will not become effective for those items.

CONCLUSION 5
I believe this is a programming error.

SUGGESTION
I suggest you report this as a bug. Before you do, perhaps someone else here in the forum can better shed light on this situation.
