Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Paragraph styles in lists

I am not sure this is what I was after.
If I create a list, initially everything is on level one.
I would like it so that if I demote an item to level 2 the style is
automatically changed to the style defined for level 2. When I tried your
suggestion I had to manually apply the List 2 style to the paragraph. Steve
I'm coming late into this discussion, but if I understand what you want to do,
you need to create a List style with two or more levels.

Press F11 to open the Styles and Formatting window in the sidebar, then select
the List Styles button and create or modify a list style with several levels
using the Options tab. For each level, you will want a different numbering

When you go to apply the style, press the Tab key to use the level below your
present one at the cursor position, or Shift+Tab to use the level above your
current one.

Hi. Partly correct. I want to create lists with more than one level (2-3 
generally) and have the paragraph style of the text change to a 
predefined style as I demote or promote the level of a paragraph. I.e. a 
different paragraph style is associated with each level.

Hi Steve,

Did you read my answer to your question? I think that solves it.
