Description fran 2004-10-11 14:03:40 UTC
I can add reference fields, but later I can't delete them, only not to use.

reassigned to ES.

ES->BH: when you set a reference over "Insert - Fields - References - Set
reference", there is no easy way to delete this reference afterwards.
The only way to do this is to select the text where the reference has been set,
cut and paste as unformatted text.

This should be dealt with in a wider context. There is also now way to edit
properties of an already defined cross reference anchor. Assume, you have
choosen a wrong "value" while defining a cross reference, there is no way to
edit this value later (isn't it?). If one already has inserted multiple
references to the cross reference definition, one want't to be able to edit the
value later - without removing the definition and all references...

This is really annoying -- the Edit -> Field selection is unavailable even if
you place the cursor at the beginning of a reference target.  The whole process
of editing fields is pretty cumbersome.

There doesn't seem to be any activity to solve this issue:( I would also like to
drag and drop the reference from Navigator.

Keeping this isue alive and closing the others.

@BH: please ask od if he sees a way for an implementation in "a" near future.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
