Description Charles Valente 2019-10-22 16:20:03 UTC
If I insert the same bibliography entry multiple times on the text, the bibliography table will repeat that entry the amount of times it appears.
The bug began on 6.3.2. I tested on both Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 64-bits, and the bug is the same. It did not happened on 6.2.

Steps to Reproduce:
Just insert the entries and the bibliography table.

Actual Results:
Duplicated entries in the bibliography table.

Expected Results:
Even if many instances of the same bibliography entry were inserted along the document, a single reference to that entry should be in the bibliography table.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Hello Charles,
Thanks for reporting this issue.
If I open the file attached, either with LibreOffice 6.4, 6.2 or 5.3 I get the same result, 4 entries in the TOC.
Could you explain how to reproduce this issue from scratch ?

Thank you very much for your return.

The problem doesn't show up in 6.2 or bellow.
I have not tested in 6.4.
It only hapens in 6.3 (the version I have is 6.3.2).

The file teste01.odt I sent previously uses a demo database installed with LO.

Maybe the bibliography database I use for my writings will trigger the problem, so I sent it to you.

Thanks again.
