Description xuan--2010--bugs.freedesktop.org 2014-07-07 21:45:09 UTC
The "comment" currently feature allows to reference exactly one location in the text which is affected by the comment.

However, there are certain comments (such as "What you say in location A is a contradiction to what you say in location B") which require, to be useful, 2 (or more) locations to be referenced. This is trivial in paper (at least if both locations are on the same page) by simply drawing both locations, but impossible (currently) with LibreOffice writer.

Multi-location comments should be made possible for the user.

One UI gesture to implement that would be to drag from a comment to the (additional) location.
