    it is a bit odd but here is a workaround

    dammit, the list numbers do not get exported to the clipboard or if you
    save the document as text, that is a bug.

    but back to your problem

    create a list

    1 list
    2 list
    3 list
      3.1 list
      3.2 list
    4 list

    then select the sublist and change it to a bullet list

    Hope that helps

    For the developers:
    (and i really should file this as a bug report i know)

    strangely this worked the first time, but failed the second time.
    when i say failed i mean that the sublist changed to bullets but jumped
    back in line with the numbers.

    and also very strange is that one of the times i did this then i did an
    Undo, and instead of getting back to a numbered list a got a list with the
    word NULL as the bullets.
    The redraw code on Undo/Redo is a bit funny, i think an extra redraw
    needs to be added somewhere

    vague very strange and not easily reproducable

    im tired and im going home, bye
