Status: NEW → RESOLVED

Resolution: --- → WONTFIX
Target Milestone: M10
This is a new feature; clicking on the bullet or number of a list will select the whole item. Resolve as WONTFIX.
Just out of curiosity - what's the precedent for this? Neither IE 5 nor Communicator 4.x do this (on Windows), and I don't believe this behavior will seem correct in terms of other apps' UI as well (for example, Word 97 doesn't behave this way)...
I believe that: - Mike thought it would be cool. - I couldn't think of any situations in which a user would be clicking a bullet otherwise (since, as you point out, it's not a UI object in other apps). So, unless the user knows that clicking on a bullet should highlight the line of text, it shouldn't create any confusing situations, ne? If you feel strongly, I suspect Mike would not object to redirecting the question the UE folks, if you'd like to re-open the bug and reassign it to shuang or german.
[No protest, so verifying as WONTFIX.]
For the record, I do protest this decision as it doesn't make sense in terms of any UI I can think of from other applications. I'll leave it as verified for now, but I am cc'ing the UI folks just for the heck of it.
As a UI person, I actually do believe that it works for users: I saw some novice users did try to click the bullet and hopped it would select the text line for them...(Word does similar (not exact) thing in Outline mode).
