Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (OFFICE-3558) Need clarity on howtext:continue-list attribute of <text:list> affects non-contiguouscontinued lists of different styles

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3558?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Oliver-Rainer Wittmann updated OFFICE-3558:

    Assignee: Cherie Ekholm 

The given description is completely right. text:continue-list can be used to form such a list which is separated by random text. But in general the two list which are combined into one by text:continue-list will have the same list-style.

The main purpose for introducing text:continue-list in ODF 1.2 is that the existing attribute text:continue-numbering does not provide the features which are needed for list continuation and due to backward-compatibility reasons a change of text:continue-numbering is not considered.

Typical use case that can be solved with text:continue-list, but not with text:continue-numbering:
1. List A
2. List A
3. List A
[a table  - one of the table cells contains a simple bullet list]
4. List B
5. List B
6. List B

This can not be solved by text:continue-numbering at "List B", because the previous list in this case is the simple bullet list and not "List A" before the table.

As tables and sections can not be sub elements of <text:list-item> elements text:continue-list can be used provide list continuation when such elements are used between the list items.

@Cherie: Does this clarify the question from your Word team at Microsoft?

> Question from the Word team at Microsoft:
> The text:continue-list attribute of <text:list> seems to imply that some list A can reference any list B within the document, even if the two lists have different list styles associated with them.
> For example, let's assume that List A uses the format "1,2,3..." and List B  uses the format "A, B, C...".  If List B references the ID for List A for continuation, does that mean my document will look like the following?
> 1.	List A
> 2.	List A
> 3.	List A
> [random text]
> D.   List B
> E.   List B
> F.   List B
> Also, if I add another list item at the end of List A, does that mean the values in List B will automatically increment? So something like:
> 1.	List A
> 2.	List A
> 3.	List A
> 4.	List A
> [random text]
> E.   List B
> F.   List B
> G.   List B
> Let me know if you need more clarity on this.
