Description George Politis 2019-09-09 19:16:21 UTC
Cannot update information for a "Bibligraphy Entry".
The Bibliography holds all the information the were written upon creation but the entries cannot be updated.

The only work around to this is to change the short name of the entry.

Steps to Reproduce:
1)Insert > Table of contents and Bibliography... > Bibliography Entry...
2) Click "new" and add some information
3) Click "ok" and then "insert".
4) Rick-Click on the rescently created entry > "Bibliography entry..."
5) Click on "Edit" add additional information. Then click "ok" and "apply".

Actual Results:
Bibliography Entry is not updated. It displays the initial entered details upon creation.

Expected Results:
The updated information at the Bibliography entry should be stored.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 4 Dieter 2019-09-12 12:01:26 UTC
Does it happen with odt-files or only with doc(x) format. If this is the case, it could be a duplicate of bug 105367.
Comment 5 George Politis 2019-09-12 12:24:10 UTC
I "saved as" my (Word 2007-365) docx file to odt file and it has the same issue regarding adding new attributes to the bibliography entry.
In fact not only I cannot update my bibliography entry but during the convertion the type changed from WWW document to Article and the URL attribute was deleted.

Seems relevant to bug 105367.
