RTF list malfunctions

Post by bpm » Sun Oct 09, 2016 10:33 pm

I've seen two consistent malfunctions with RTF lists. Spotted the mechanism in one case, not the other.

Unsolved: bulleted list saved & reopened in Textmaker displays without bullets. (Re-opened numbered lists display properly, and bulleted lists created in Wordpad display properly.) When opened in Wordpad, there are bullets on all but last item (see below).

Solved: when lists saved in Textmaker are opened in Wordpad or Jarte, last item does not appear as a list item: no indent, no bullet or number. Compared in a text editor to Wordpad lists, the difference is lack of a closing \par tag on the final list item. Addition of the tag fixes the problem.

Thank you! Please provide a sample file if possible.

Specimens attached. Three-line list, created with default bullets (solid, round).

One file used my template (which includes nothing but three character styles which change text colour). For me, this displays with no bullets (or possibly invisible bullets) in Textmaker Android; displays with hollow rectangular bullets in Textmaker Windows; and displays with solid round bullets (except last item) in Wordpad.

The other file used normal.tmv. When I reopen that in Textmaker Android I see solid square bullets (and Greek letters; it shows up in Symbol for some reason).

Incidentally, the no-\par-on-last-item bug is also present in Textmaker Windows.
