ODT document with cross-references to numbered list elements
Build ID: 37b43f919e4de5eeaca9b9755ed688758a8251fe
Locale: de-DE (en_US.utf8)
I have an ODT document with more than 100 cross-references to elements of one numbered list that was originally created in LO 4.2 and LO 4.3. When turning on the field names (Ctrl+F9) I noticed that most of these cross-references refer to __RefNumPara__, while some refer to __RefHeading__.
After upgrading to LO 188.8.131.52 (I skipped LO 4.4) all cross-references referring to __RefHeading__ failed. Even after re-inserting all failing cross-references and saving the document, they still refer to __RefHeading__ and they still fail the next time the document is opened and all references are updated per F9.
Unfortunately, I cannot attach the original ODT document for privacy reasons. However, I added a different ODT document that shows that now all references to numbered list elements seem to be inserted as __RefHeading__ field names.
So, my questions are:
1) What is the intended field name for numbered list elements, __RefNumPara__ or __RefHeading__?
2) How can I clean up the >100 cross-references in my ODT document so that they will all work correctly under LO 184.108.40.206?
BTW: I also noted, that „Fields → Cross-references → Insert reference to“ starts always with „Page“, regardless of the setting used for the recently inserted cross-reference. It would be easier for the user, if it would start with the settings used for the recently inserted cross-reference.
yeah that was some horrible bug, fixed in 4.4.6
