Description fabien3d 2006-02-19 23:26:35 UTC
Actually, when using ghe Edit>Links panel, a list of all the linked documents  
is displayed, with a short description of every of them. But very few  
information is displayed, so it's very difficult to guess what the linked  
document is among the list.   
For instance, in a multi-pages OOo Draw document of mine, a lot of linked  
photos (bitmaps) are set. When I modify a photo in The GIMP, I need to refresh  
this picture in my OOo Draw document. Instinctively, I select this picture in  
my document and then use the Edit>Links menu : in the panel, the first linked  
bitmap is selected, not the one I had selected. This one should be  
automatically selected when I invoke the Edit>Links panel. 
Another feature should be a small preview of the document without being forced 
to click the Modify button and then check/uncheck the Preview checkbox in the 
Picture Link select box.

My I add a request?
The list of pictures is in the order of insertion.
It would be great to:
- Have also the information WHERE the are located (i.e. page number)

- Be able to sort by:
   - Page number occurring (and then position on page)
   - File name only
   - File location than by name
   - (By Element and type would be nice, but normally less useful)
