Description R. Green 2020-01-09 16:34:58 UTC
Created attachment 157043 [details]
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".
