1. open attachment 86189 [details] in MS Word
2. scroll to page 3
3. right-click on index and click 'Update Field' and select 'Update page numbers only'
4. nothing changes
5. open attachment 86189 [details] in Writer
6. save as .docx
7. open LO saved .docx in MS Word
8. scroll to page 3
9. right-click on index and click 'Update Field' and select 'Update page numbers only'
10. notice that the dots between the figure names and the page numbers are gone

regression that started in 4.3 as 4.2 worked fine.

but I didn't have step "right-click on index and click 'Update Field' and select 'Update page numbers only'" in LO, because there is only "Update Index" without any additional dialogs in LO

And dots are still after updating of index in LO

Comment 4 Buovjaga 2019-01-23 11:54:07 UTC
Still repro.

Roman: you have to do the updating in Microsoft Office.

Comment 7 QA Administrators 2022-12-28 03:21:27 UTC
Dear Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired),

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
