I am using LibreOffice 3.4.5 and am trying to manually copy a set of Constitution & By-Laws of a Fraternal group I'm a Secretary in. For today, at least, I've had to give up on it --- no matter what I do, I cannot type in the text as I want it. Somewhere in the program, Bullets & Numbering is turned on by default & no matter what I do, I can not turn that feature [anti-feature, really!]' off. The net result is that no matter what I do, for making a copy of this document, LibreOffice seems to worse than useless...

This is a feature which can be useful but it can be equally frustrating if you don't want it - until you learn to control it.

I would really like to be able to permanently and irrevocably disable the bullets & Numbers ...

Easy: just go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options, and remove the tick from "Apply numbering - symbol: *".

... it is by far the greatest annoyance in this program, and definitely not needed at all, especially when one can not have in operate the way you want it to, but only the way someone else wants.

No doubt some people like it.

Incidentally, another easy workaround is just to use Edit | Undo (or Ctrl+Z) *immediately* you see the unwanted correction occur. This will remove the correction and leave exactly what you typed.

I trust this helps.
