Description Felipe Viggiano 2020-07-21 01:35:47 UTC
While trying to link sections between .odt files, LibreOffice failed to allow me to choose wic section from the file I want to link.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a .odt file with 2 different sections in it (put some different text in each section to make it easier to visualize).
2. Save and close the file.
3. Create a new .odt file and insert one section.
4. Go to EDIT SECTION in the context menu, and link it with the previous file.

Actual Results:
All sections are inserted in the new document.

Expected Results:
The LO Writer should allow you to choose wich section to link.

Reproducible: Always

I can't confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 1c213561a365b5666167321de68c9977500c9612

Not clear from your steps, if you selected one section. Might be related to bug 129881. So could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html ? You can install it alongside the standard version. I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the master build.

Yeah, this was exactly like the 129881 bug.

I can confirm that in the latest release of LibreOffice 7.0 this bug was fixed.
