Description Thomas Kluyver 2013-05-23 10:44:55 UTC
I'm creating a document with a lot of cross-references, using the 'Category and Number' style (e.g. 'Figure 1'). Each time I open the Cross-reference dialogue (from the Insert menu), the selection has returned to the first possible style (Page), and I have to select 'Category and Number' again.

In contrast, the the 'Type' list on the left remembers what was selected last time I opened the dialogue. So hopefully this is a simple thing.

Nice enhancement request... This has annoyed me for a long time. Adding myself to the CC list.

It sounds like it was fixed, but I don't have LO 5.2 yet, so I can't easily verify that.
