Description Michael 2019-01-26 22:52:13 UTC
Unless I replace each biblio entry each time AFTER updating the bibliography database, the 'update bibliography' function does not utilize the updated database thus does not properly update it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create bibliography database, make entries in document, create bibliography in document.
2. update database (add records, modify previous).
3. update bibliography in document.

Actual Results:
updated bibliography does not reflect changes you made in the database.

Expected Results:
updated the bibliography with changes you made to bibliography database.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

5.4 branch is EOL.

Could you give a try to a recent LO version (last one is 6.1.4)?
