Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-08-22 20:09:32 UTC
In the insert toolbar, there are buttons for inserting a footnote (.uno:InsertFootnote) and endnote (.uno:InsertEndnote). The insert footnote tooltip is 'Insert Footnote/Endnote Directly' and the insert endnote tooltip is 'Insert Endnote Directly'.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I could reproduce this. It seems inherited from OOo

ux-advise:  The fix is obvious since it's there http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI/WriterCommands.xcu#564 but could there be an explanation? Indeed it's very strange it has been like this since all this time.
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-08-23 14:17:49 UTC
I maybe mistaken but this should be set to NEW, as NEEDINFO is a status when more information is needed from the bug reporter. :)
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2014-08-23 15:00:17 UTC
You're right Jay, I'll put it at NEW.
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2014-08-23 15:46:36 UTC
I don’t think there is a logical explanation. Go ahead and JFDI ;)
