Description aziem 2005-10-15 00:07:35 UTC
In my master document, a link is broken, and exactly nothing happens when I
modify it from the dialog Edit Links.

There may be an easier way to reproduce, but here what I did:
1. Save a text document called <chapter one.odt>.  Close.
2. Create  master document.
3. In the Navigator, insert <chapter one.odt> before Text.
4. Save as <master.odm>.  Close.
5. Rename <chapter 2.odt> to <chapter 1.odt>.
6. Open <master.odm>.
7. Answer Yes to "Update all links?"
8. In the Navigator, <chapter one.odt> is in red indicating its link is broken.
9. Edit->Links
10. Modify button.
11. Select <chapter 1.odt>.
12. Nothing happens.  The old file name is listed in two places in the Edit
Links dialog.  There is no error message.

On the other hand, I /can/ edit the link in the Navigator using right click,
then Edit Link.

My system: 2.0.0 rc2, Windows 2000

Please verify your description.
Point 5): there is no <chapter 2.odt> to rename to <chapter 1.odt>.
So, probably, the document does not exist.
Else, please, attach a sample document.
Feel fre to reoen when you have correct infos..

Sorry.  Use this instead:

5. Rename <chapter one.odt> to <chapter 1.odt>.

Today I can still reproduce the bug exactly the same with OOo 2.1 Windows XP.
Comment 10 eric.savary 2007-03-22 16:31:12 UTC
Now I do understand!

The name you see in the Navigator is the name of the section which has been
creating while inserting the document and took its name from the document itself.

It would be a feature to make the section name change according to the document
it is linked with.

If makes sense to implenet this, I don't know...

I think it's actually a bug for several reasons.
1. The link is listed wrong two places in Edit->Links.
2. The link is listed wrong in the Navigator.
2. The link is red in the Navigator.
3. The link behaves as broken (not just cosmetic).  To test it, add text to
"chapter 1.odt" and notice it does not show in master document.
