Description wolfgang.fuchs 2018-07-10 15:47:59 UTC
When a comment is placed in the category name of a caption, the category disappears in all cross references that use category.
For example, when a comment is added to the word "Table" in the caption "Table 1: <Caption Text>", then all cross references which should display "Table 1" will instead display only "1". As soon as the comment is removed, the cross reference will correctly display "Table 1"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a table.
2. Add a caption.
3. Insert a cross reference to the table, using "Category and Number"
4. Add a comment to the word "Table" in the caption.

Actual Results:
The cross reference will display "1" instead of "Table 1" as soon as the comment is added.

Expected Results:
The cross reference should not be affected by a comment to the caption.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Repro -- but a few qualifications.

1. The loss of "Table" from the display of the cross-reference variable happens if the selection for comment includes:

   a. part of the word "Table"  
   b. part of the word "Table" and some text before "Table"

2. No problem (i.e., no loss of category name in cross-reference variable), WFM if the selection for comment includes:

    c. part of the word of the word "Table", but the selection goes past the "e" in Table and includes other text.
    d. the entire word "Table".
