Hi :)
That sounds very unusual.  There is a nice little selection of different bullet-points and i've not 
noticed any that look like that.  Have you tried renaming your User Profile?  

Can you get someone with MS Office to send a document with various different types of bullet points 
to see if it's just images used as bullet opints that have that effect?  The standard MS bullet 
points look about the same in OOo/LO as they do in MS Office afaik.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Bullets in .doc/.docx documents always become "^"?
Date: Wednesday, 11 April, 2012, 7:14


This is a problem I've been encountering since the old OpenOffice days:

Whenever I open a .doc or .docx document created with Micro$oft Office, bullet points in it always 
become "^"s (sans quotes and s).

Does anyone know why??? Is this a bug in the import filter, or something else???
