StyleCollection.addCopy(Style) not working correctly

Hi there,
We have a document where the numbering property in Heading 1 and Heading 2 style is changed to 1,2,3,…+. The node <w:numPr><w:numId w:val=“1 /></w:numPr>, is added in Heading style’s pPr (paragraph property node) in styles.xml (when we unzip it). The style is modified as {style -> modify -> Format -> Numbering -> 1,2,3}. We say this document as “Doclet1.docx”.

Given this, we are trying to add a style from
one document to another but for simplicity here presenting adding “Heading 1” from ‘same’ document.

Document doc = new Document(“Doclet1.docx”);
String styleName = “Heading 1”;

System.out.println(doc.getStyles().get(styleName).getListFormat().getList().getListId()); // 1

// add the style
// using same doc for simplicity, different copy could be used for source style
// but source and destination style should be same tweaked for Numbering property

// for (Style d: (Iterable)doc.getStyles()) {
// System.out.println(d.getName());
// }

System.out.println(doc.getStyles().get(styleName+"_0").getListFormat().getList().getListId()); // 3

When you try the above code, the style ‘Heading 1_0’ has the list id = 3 (should be 1, the source style).

Our observation is Numbering value is not getting correctly added using StyleCollection.addCopy(Style) method. Please have a look into this.
