I set the reply to the libreoffice users list, as the developers list wasn't the proper one.

I looked inside your document, and it appears that the first paragraph is inside a list, with the paragraph as its only list item. And it is a list with no bullet and no number. I have no idea how you got this. But that's why it behaves differently.

So I clicked in that paragraph, and then clicked on the "Toggle Bulleted List" Icon. Then a bullet appears, which you obviously don't want. So click on this icon again to remove the bullet. After this the paragraph behaves normally.

By the way, I didn't see any "block 0.5" style in the document. All the paragraphs had "Default Style".
