Why does openoffice not apply the list style when you create a list. If I open a document in it sets the style to Default. If I then select a bulleted list it stays set to Default rather switching to List. Is there a way to set this?

Hi David,

I do think it's weird that no List1 List2 List3 style etc is applied when you apply list formatting. As for still being Default, that's actually the paragraph style, which is still technically correct. For any list you can apply a paragraph style for font, vertical spacing, etc. and a list style for number type, space from number to text, etc.

I'm trying to change the default List style in Writer. I have modified my list (List 1) but do not know how to set it as the default. Any tips?
