Description Unknown 2002-05-03 13:58:21 UTC
In Framemaker, we can insert cross-references to headings without having to
create a reference first. There is a much better chance that my boss would use
OOo or SO if it had this feature. Framemaker is absolutely horrible, but this
feature is why we use it.

The feature is in essence the creation and insertion of a cross-reference based
on paragraph style. A window is displayed showing all the paragraph "tags" (as
framemaker calls them) on the left. On the right is displayed all of the
paragraphs (or at least the first line of each) having that tag. You then can
select the paragraph you want to cross-reference, and then click insert. On OOo,
I would need to create the cross-reference first, and then insert it where I
want it. This is not acceptable for large documents.

Word does this too. I have so far been unable to create a
crossreference to numbered items. I would like to use this to be able
to refer to numbered literature references, numbered figures,
headings, tables etc. Having to manually label such items as
references sort of counters the productivity gained by having
automatic numbering (i.e. IMHO this is a severe usability issue). I've
posted a question on and from what I understand it is
currently not possible to this in OOo (please correct me if I'm wrong,
it will convince me to make the switch to OOo).

I've noticed that word documents which have such cross-references
import &update just fine which indicates that the necessary
infrastructure is there. However, I'm sorry to say that because of the
clumsy UI for cross-references it is too hard to create new references
and impossible to create references to numbered items. Consequently, I
cannot yet make the switch to OOo (even though I really like the rest
of the suit).

Duplicates 25072 (which is now closed as fixed and verified).
Comment 6 jr 2009-06-14 01:17:39 UTC
cross-refrences to headings are now possible: issue 25072

In addition to that:
outline level attribut allows cross-references also on single paragraphs: issue

-> closing now as duplicate
