Description Jacobo Aragunde Pérez 2014-06-06 18:30:21 UTC
Bibliographic fonts in a .docx document are stored in customXml/item?.xml files. LO can preserve those files if they are already present in the original document (when opening a .docx) but it cannot create them yet.

The result is that saving an .odt document as .docx results on the lose of the bibliographic fonts. Steps to reproduce:

1. Open attachment 95957 [details].
2. Save as .docx.
3. Open the exported document in Word.
4. Now do some reference-related operation, for example in the "references" tab change the style of the citations. The citation will become invalid.
5. You can also check "references" -> bibliography manager to see that [ARJ00] reference is not there.

Hi Jacobo :-)

You can mark your own created bug reports as NEW right away.

(1) you know what you're doing in bugzilla :) (providing enough information, step by step, doesn't report dupes, etc etc).
(2) you are a known developer ;-)

So feel free to mark as NEW. Unless you need some confirmation or help bibisecting etc. In that case you can leave it as UNCONFIRMED so someone else will have a look.

Thanks for improving LibreOffice' compatibility.

Kind regards,
