Description deslack 2005-05-11 20:36:05 UTC
In a document with DDE links to other docs (in my case, a spreadsheet:) Menu: Edit -> Links -> Modify... I think there should be a Browse... button to aid locating the missing linked document. It would be better if Writer'd store the linking information using relative links (the files are in the same directory) or Writer'd try to find the missing linked document and automatically relink it, without user intervention. (or perhaps during the "Update all links?" dialog box on open.
