Description Nicolas Saettel 2016-02-19 12:51:55 UTC
Using Writer 5.1.0.3 x64 on Windows7

The footnotes (or endnotes)are not showing in the navigator if they are entered manually (i.e. written out). They are showing, however, if one uses the Zotero extension.
Thank you for considering this bug (if in your opinion it is)

Nicolas

I installed zotero, but doesn't see a difference. Post a printscreen what do you see. I'm not zotero user, so if some settings are needed to do, guide me.

refs not showing in navigator

Sure, here is a snapshot: refs 23-25 are zotero ones, 26 and 27 are entered manually, and not showing in the navigator

Please attach test file with one zotero's reference and one manual reference. Thanks.
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2016-02-26 20:07:54 UTC
Did they work ok in an older version?

Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.
Comment 5 Nicolas Saettel 2016-03-07 15:45:49 UTC
I just tried with version 4.4.7.2, only the zotero ones show...
If I try with a new document, with a manual reference either end of page or end of the document, nothing shows up in the navigator
Comment 6 Buovjaga 2016-03-09 18:46:52 UTC
Nicolas: the "References" in Navigator is connected with Cross-references. I did this: Insert - Cross-ref - Set reference: gave some text and Insert. Now navigator showed the text under References.

Navigator does not show footnotes or endnotes at all, because the feature does not exist yet.

Would you like to turn this into a feature request?

Comment 7 Nicolas Saettel 2016-03-10 15:23:05 UTC
The purpose of inserting/defining a cross reference is a completely different process (I would be interested to see the use)
Indeed, I would very much like to see it in the navigator as a feature request
Thanks

I agree to Nicolas. It would be very helpful to see the footnotes in the navigator, especially because there seems to be no current release of the Zotero extension.

I wouldnt be in favour of integrating footnotes and endnotes into navigator, as they would be normally present on all pages (footnotes) or all at the end of document (endnotes). You can find my suggested navigator improvements in bug 89566 and Heiko's here - < https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/07/20160730_Writer.png >.

@Heiko, @Cor, @Stuart: What is your take?

When the user has many footnotes it might be helpful to search them separately. So Navigator yes but as a separate section (not necessarily a real tab as in my mockup) and not merged into a tree with outlines, captions etc.

As footnotes are searchable with the find toolbar or dialog, why would you need to search through them in the sidebar? So does this mean you wouldnt be in favour of it with endnotes? In the mockup, you have 'References' in the objects tab, so i'm assuming that is where you were thinking it should go?
