I have a reference used in a document table. I can delete the text, but when I save as PDF the reference text is forced back into the document where it was.
The reference was within a table cell.
The only way to fix is was to delete that entire table row, and then recreate it.
However then the changebar (changes) would show the row as new, not changed.
LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
I cannot reproduce it in a new odt document
