Hi, the issue is just that some files have changed paths. This version of
the patch should apply to current git. I can also provide a patch against
the ubuntu packages if you want to test (paths are slightly different
there as well).

I see this problem with english numbering just as well. I think it has to
do with a tabstop being inserted after the letter. You can select that
the bullet numbers are "right justified" from Format Settings and that
space instead of tab is used after the numbers and this fixes the issue
I think. My code just selects the appropriate greek letter(s) for each
number. I could use the ancient greek / katharevousa symbol for '6'
instead of 'sigma' 'taf' and that would make it a single letter, but I think
most people would prefer the modern version.

I didn't know this, thanks for mentioning the issue there as well :)

Thanks for your testing and support :)
Let's hope that getting code into Libre Office will be less trouble
than with oo.org.
