Writer file with footnotes and alphabetical index
Open the attached Writer file.
1. Use the Search and replace dialogue (Ctrl + H) to highlight the word "Juvenal" in the footnotes of page 1.
2. Open the "Insert Index entry" dialogue and press the "Update entry from selection" button.
EXPECTED RESULT: The word "Juvenal" should appear in the "Entry" field.
ACTUAL RESULT: The "Entry" field remains blank.
The workaround is to re-highlight the text manually (by double-clicking, say) before pressing "Update entry from selection".
