             Summary: Improvements to Text Pane bullets and numbers
                 Key: PIVOT-1062
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-1062
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: wtk
            Reporter: Roger Lee Whitcomb
            Assignee: Roger Lee Whitcomb
             Fix For: 2.1.0

Right now the options for NumberdList and BulletedList in TextPane are relatively limited.
Numerous improvements could be made.

Numbered List
* options for punctuation: none, period, right paren after, parens around, right bracket after,
brackets around, right brace after, braces around, hyphen
* option for number of spaces after: zero, 1 (default), 2, or tab
* option to specify a leading word (such as "Chapter", "Section", or "Appendix", or the section,
paragraph characters (§ or ❡)
* option for cascading (so that subsequent indent levels have 1. then 1.1, then 1.1.1 (requires
knowledge of hierarchy)
* option for word only (so that each level has "Section", "Heading", "Paragraph", etc.

Bulleted List
* there are a great variety of dingbats available in Unicode, such as asterisks, many more
bullet circles, squares, stars, etc.
* image bullets could be supported, where you include a small gif, png, bmp, whatever
* options for spacing as above

In general you could specify a separate font size for these, in order to emphasize or make
more (or less) prominent.

Perhaps even more flexibility could be added once these basic improvements are implemented.
 But, I think these cover the vast majority of use-cases from word-processing apps currently
