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

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.

@Edwin: Sorry. Where do you find a file selector […] for a DDE link?
