How to find cross references in text document

Hi, I’m using cross referencefor end notes because I want to quote certain sources multiple times within a document.
But where does Libreoffice list all cross references I put into the document?

You can use the AltSearch extension to find reference markers, among many other options not available on the regular search&replace tool.

{Extended → Cross ref. marker (text)} to search for text, marked as referable.
{Extended → Cross-reference (text)} to search for text, that is reference to referable text.

Open InsertCross-reference... and select Cross-references tab if not already done. In Type box, click on a category of reference and they will appear in the box Selection. Box Insert reference to allows to choose which attribute of the reference to insert.

If this answers your question, please accept it by clicking on the check mark at left (it turns green). If this is what you expect, close the question for community benefit.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no explicit list of cross-references. However, you can navigate quickly from cross-ref to cross-ref with the following procedure:

  • put your cursor in a known index entry (they can be easily located when View>Field shadings is enabled)
  • open Edit>Index Entry
  • the bottom buttons with bold arrows switch to the previous/next index entry

You end up with a sequential process. Sorry, I didn’t find a way to jump directly to a specific index entry.

The same trick can be used to navigate from note anchor to the next:

  • select (don’t click or you’ll be warped to the note itself) a note anchor in the text
  • open Edit>Footnote/Endnote
  • use the bold arrow buttons to jump to the previous/next note anchor


  • Display the navigator side panel.

  • Click on the Navigation icon in its toolbar and select the Index entry icon from the drop-down menu.

Now the two small icons with up- and down-pointing triangles to the right of the Navigation icon will move the cursor to the previous/next index entry when clicked.

Thanks for your help.
That I have already done. The question I have: If I insert cross references, how do I FIND them afterwards in the text? In the Navigator I couldn’t finde a LIST of ALL CROSS REFERENCES…

I have the same question, how to find all cross references (eg bibliografic cross reference and footers) in the document.

Thanks this was helpful
