Some users found that NeoOffice 2017 would not display bullets instead of spaces when the View > Non-printing Characters menu item is checked in Writer.
I was able to find the specific place in the LibreOffice 4.4 code that replaces spaces with bullets. I found that the LibreOffice engineers had disabled this feature on macOS so I fixed this bug by reenabling the disabled LibreOffice code.
You do not need to wait until the next NeoOffice release to get the fix. You can get the fix now by downloading and installing the following test patch:
