[Upstream] abc numbering not automatic in Writer

Bug Description

OS: Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal stable
Application: LibreOffice 3.3.3
OOO330m19 (Build:301)
tag libreoffice-, Ubuntu package 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu2
Writer (installed via PPA)

Referring to Christopher M. Penalver's comment in Bug #831305, this is a new bug report filed.

When typing "a.", "(a)" or "a)" (without quotes), typing some text and then hitting Enter, the next line does not become "b.", "(b)" or "b)" respectively. Ditto for the capitalised version of the same (A., A), etc). Correct numbering can be performed by using another numbering style and then changing it via the Bullets and Numbering toolbar, but it is an inelegant solution. All other common numbering styles work fine, though the options in the Bullets and Numbering toolbar do not include such common styles as a., b., c. and (i), (ii), (iii) etc.

E.g., 1. blabla<enter>
        1. blabla

but a. blabla<enter>

doesn't become a. blabla

Similar with almost all other numbering styles, they are seemingly
not available for autocorrect.

Satchit Bhogle, this is:
- a clearcut upstream issue.
- won't be fixed in LibreOffice Packaging
Resolving as Won't Fix in LibreOffice Packaging. This does not mean the issue will not be cared about, but if it is cared about (even by Ubuntu/Canonical contributors), it is done upstream at LibreOffice.
