I wanted to customise the bullet symbol to use a ‘medium’ size round bullet. The default list options have a tiny or huge bullet and I wanted something in between. I found a symbol in the Symbol library (F087) and updated the symbol in the Customise tab of the Bullets and Numbering dialog.
It seemed to work but when I quit and reopened the document the customisation was lost.
Then I created a new bullet style for my custom list and created my custom bullet list. That too seemed to work but when I reopened the document the custom style name was still in the list but it had lost the ‘Numbering Style’ so I still didn’t get my custom bullet list symbol.
I now have to edit the style and re-select the ‘Numbering Style’ from the dropdown. The numbering style ‘WWNum’ advances each time I open the document. It’s now WWNum7. If I select that style, I get the custom bullet symbol I want.
It’s a real nuisance to have to reassign the Numbering Style when I open the document. Is there some way to preserve the custom bullet list I’ve created?
I have also noticed that I have several hundred "ListLabel’ Character Styles in the Bullets and Numbering dialog. It’s now at ListLabel 289. This is increasing but at a faster rate than the number of times I’ve opened the document. Where are these coming from?
I’m using Writer 220.127.116.11
