How Can I Remove an Applied List Style? [closed]

Here is what I've done:

  1. Created a bulleted list.
  2. Selected the list.
  3. Double-clicked "List 1" from the "Styles and Formatting" window.

The style is applied. Yay.

Later, I decide that I don't like that style, and I want to revert to the default bulleted list styling. Here's what I do:

  1. Select the list.
  2. Um..?

How can I remove the applied list style? So far, the only thing I've been able to come up with is to create a default bulleted list, select it, create a new user style from that selection, and then use that style on my original list. This doesn't really solving the problem of removing the offending style, so here I am asking you.

This is precisely why list styles should be associated with (the provided list-named) paragraph styles by default[1] and only assigned via application / removal of a paragraph style. There is no list style for either unordered (List N) or ordered (Numbering N) lists that have no identifier e.g., some sort of List none or Numbering none.

These questions are related:

As you indicate in the question, there only appear to be workaround solutions to this issue.

[1] The decision to remove this default in the v3.x series was a UX error IMO.
