I created an .odt doc with multiple sections in ver 5. Now, in ver 6.4, when I try to insert one of these sections into an .odt doc, I click the link box and choose the file that contains the sections but it will not allow me to choose a section. It does not display the sections in the list on the left. If I click on “insert” it inserts the entire file.
Do the sections appear when you open the source (original) file in Writer?
does not display the sections in the list on the left
The sections of the file linked to appear in the drop down labelled Section on the right (while the left pane contains the sections of the current document).
After I select the source file that contains the sections, the drop down menu is empty. It will not display any sections.
This seems to be a problem of 126.96.36.199 - Just created a document containing 2 sections with LibreOffice version 188.8.131.52 and tried to to link into a new document using
184.108.40.206 - sections are shown in drop down
220.127.116.11 - sections are shown in drop down
18.104.22.168 - sections are not shown in drop down
22.214.171.124 - sections are shown in drop down
126.96.36.199 - sections are shown in drop down
Excuse me - inadvertently deleted your last comment.
this is tdf#129881 section dropdown box in Link section of “Edit Sections” dialog does not show sections in an external document that has sections, which was fixed for 7.0.0
Hence you should update to one of the 7.x series of releases.
Hope that helps.
I upgraded to 188.8.131.52 and it now works fine.
