Description Ulrich Windl 2014-07-15 15:42:41 UTC
Recently I found out that one of my document has a hyperlink to the wrong image (off by one). Being alarmed, I tried to find out whether there are more occurrences of that wrong hyperlink. Trying to search for the specific text (like "Abbildung 2.1" in German), I realized that Writer seems to be unable to search generated text (as that of the hyperlink/cross reference).

Thus the enhancement request is simple: Allow searching (and finding!) generated text phrases.

Hi, can you provide your document? Links to image are listed under Edit > Links. There is different way to search objects in Writer. Also don't put your own bug to new, they have to be confirmed by QA members first, thanks. Set as Needinfo - Sophie

On "NEW": I did nothing; that was the default it seems (and it is the default in Bugzilla anyway).
On "Edit > Links": That will allow me to change the link the cursor is on, right? I was asking for something different, namely find the displayed text that is generated for a link/cross reference.
On the document: The document I had was the most complex I have; I'm trying to provide a simple sample instead.

Hi, thanks for the sample, now I understand that you were talking about the content of the fields. It's a duplicate of #70142 - Sophie
