LO 7.2.0 Multilevel outline numbering no longer works

Since upgrading from LO v7.1 to v7.2 Multilevel outline no longer shows the numbering characters. I suspect the default formatting is using a font I don’t have or the font doesn’t have normal characters.

Outline function worked in libreOffice writer v7.1.5 and below but not in v7.2.0 or the release candidates. Tested on Windows 7 64 bit

To reproduce

  • Open a new document or edit an existing document
  • Enter text to the first outline leve
  • Format it as a multilevel list using the tool bar and select the predefine example top row, third across
  • Separator is shown but not “1”
  • Enter second line, tab to make it a lower level and enter text
  • Again separator is shown but not “a”

Outline numbering is OK in, Windows 10 x64; I can reproduce fault in but I haven’t checked in latest version,
If you have and it occurs then you should post it as bug, see How to report bugs. Cheers, Al

I have reproduced this on and release
I have not been able to reproduce this on 7.1.4 or 7.1.5
