Description JOHN DECOULOS 2015-04-02 15:46:57 UTC
The F5 key in older version worked fine to display Bookmarks and is quicker than using the cursor and going through Navigator.  Cannot get the Bookmarks to list Alphabetically.

Which versions are you referring to?
Please also provide an example document and perhaps even screenshots of good and bad results.

Here's how you can try with different versions at the same time: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information and document.

I looked at this comment https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86395#c7
I also tested with LibreOffice 3.3.0 (the fork from OOo) and can confirm that it has always been like that with LibreOffice (don't know about older OOo).

Right-click on the page number shows the bookmarks sorted by order in document.
Navigator shows them alphabetically.

I will have to consult the developers about the rationale behind this.

I reproduce the problem with my own old documents: the bookmarks are not listed in alphabetical order in the navigator, while it is the case with new documents.
Tested with Version:
Build ID: 607af001ccdbfe40b089942b879e5ce3980bde49
built at home under Ubuntu_15.04_x86-64

Not reproducible anymore in LO and current master, both built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64.

As expected, bookmarks are now listed in alphabetical order in the Navigator while they are listed in their position order in the dropdown list from the status bar.
I guess the change is linked to recent rework of bookmark dialog.

Closing as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you disagree.
