Description Stefan 2015-09-10 21:02:14 UTC
The "Find text"-function in Writer ignores text in reference fields. This behavior is bad, particularly in conjunction with the implementation of the bibliographic indexes.

Why this would be useful? Simple Example:
- I inserted some references to a book from my global bib-index.
- If i edited some entries in this global list an will import this changes to my local (document) index i have to search (an manually replace :/) all "old" (local) references.
- If the "Finde text"-function also finds texts in references, this would be easier.

Another simple example:
- if this search would also find reference texts, i could simple find and check all references to "book X" in my document
