Description RGB 2010-12-13 14:54:58 UTC
The cross reference system on Writer is really powerful, but it needs one important enhancement: if you have several headings (I have documents with more than 30) finding the one you want to cross-reference is difficult. To have a filter field where you can type a few characters to narrow the list would be a blessing.

This could be an easy hack. The code of the whole tab page is located here:
http://opengrok.go-oo.org/xref/writer/sw/source/ui/fldui/fldref.cxx

However, it would be nice to think about a better UI for the whole fields dialog as there are quite a lot of stuffs to add or change there.

An EasyHack should have been checked by developers and thus is confirmed regardless of age. Moving back to NEW from NEEDINFO again. Sorry for the hassle.

Deleted "Easyhack" from summary.

adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

Hi all, a decent stab at resolving this has been made in gerrit, I don't know the codebase well enough to confirm the enhancement though. If someone more knowledgeable than myself could review this, it would be greatly appreciated :-)
