Cross reference numbered paragraphs between documents


I have a couple of documents, each with some numbered paragraphs, that I want to cross reference. By means of example, I’d like to have bullet number 1 in document 1 cross-referenced by bullet number 1 in document 2.

I tried using a master document but cannot seem to use numbered paragraphs for bookmarks or links, and yet I would like the references updated as they are when in the same document (either fully or semi-automatically).

Can this be done?

Many thanks,

It should be possible, but it may depend on the structure of the master document. Did you try to follow the steps described in the OOo wiki?

Thanks tohuwawohu. I did look through the wiki but it looked to be more about references and bookmarks, but not about numbered paragraphs. I didn’t see an particularly easy/convenient way to make the bullets bookmarks and reference the bullet number itself. Could there be another way? Thanks.

i’m also looking for the best way to number paragraphs in a document. i have a text in two languages and i want to annotate each paragraph with a link to the corresponding paragraph in the other language… did you get anywhere with this?

anybody else with some good ideas?

currently my best bet seems to be inserting frames with a macro, setting them not to print, etc… quite some headache, so still looking for a better/easier solution.

i’d like it to be our of the way, yet clickable.
