Example file containing broken references.

There seems to be something wrong with the bibliography reference handling when importing .docx file containing bibliography entries created with Reference Manager software.

The references seem to be imported as bookmarks named as _Toc[serial] and the "References" section itself is empty.

LibreOffice cannot currently handle Word bibliography objects, though this should be possible with a full implementation of ODF 1.2.

An out-of-date summary and useful links are here: https://www.openoffice.org/bibliographic/

This description could use some work by someone who actually knows what they're talking about; I'm just an interested user.

Could someone explain what exactly is missing from the example in LO?
Comment 14 Timur 2020-03-16 15:07:24 UTC
If this is the same as bug 129690, that example is better.
