Hi all,

I find this description in the documentation very misleading:

Each of the list styles predefined in Writer has four associated
paragraph styles. For example, the
Numbering 1 list style is associated with four paragraph styles:
Numbering 1
Numbering 1 Cont.
Numbering 1 End
Numbering 1 Start

In what sense list style "Numbering 1" is related to paragraph styles
"Numbering 1 *"? What one can see is that the N in paragraph styles
"Numbering N *" is related to indentation level and not intended for
working in tandem with the list style "Numbering N". One can use
paragraph style "Numbering 1" with any of the list styles, because
concerns seem to be completely orthogonal.

Can you clarify the relationship between paragraph styles "Numbering N
*" and list style "Numbering N"?

What scenarios are paragraph styles "Numbering N *" and "List N *" intended for?

Thank you a lot

     Was this documentation in a Styles chapter of the Writer Guide
perhaps? If so, where in this guide was it located? If not, what
documentation did you mean?
     I think the answer you are seeking is found in the Styles and
Formating window. 
     Use the F11 key to open it. There are several icons at the top; the
one of the left (Paragraph styles) is the one you want. At the bottom of
the window is a drop down list with Automatic selected by Default
(unless you have changed it). Select "All Styles". In that list you will
find the Numbering N * paragraph styles. Right click anyone of them and
select Modify from the context menu (it  is a pop up window.) Click the
"Outline & Numbering" tab. When you want to add a numbering or bullet
style to your paragraph style, you select it here.
     The paragraph style dictates the properties of the paragraph. The
numbering (or list [bullet]) style dictates the numbering that appears
at the beginning of each paragraph.
