Today I created a master document with several odt files, and I tried to set and insert a cross-reference. I followed what explained here and here but the result was not what I expected.
As a matter of fact I got
- in the subdocument an error message (what seems normal) and
- in the master document just a link to the reference set, not the content of the reference. Unlike what happens with cross-references within the same document. So it is senseless a cross reference: rather better a hyperlink. But maybe it happened because when I set the reference today I wasn’t able to set more than a (single) row: I don’t understand why…
It seems, in Google search, that help for this problem is very aged (2011 or so), not updated: nobody uses this technique?
BTW: LO in my opinion, should allow to delete references.
I think that so far there is no solution, because the problem is that LibreWriter doesn’t allow to set as reference more than one paragraph.
And that, in my opinion, narrows very much the possible uses in a intellectual activity. Indeed I would have to share between different document more information than a single paragraph.
An enhancement in this direction would be blessed.
I have posted this my new question here.
