Description sschuberth 2006-12-07 10:31:24 UTC
This is for 2.1 RC2 on Windows XP.

Goal: I want to define a new bibliography entry in the document, but not insert
any references to it yet.

Steps to reproduce:
- Choose "Insert -> Indexes and Tables -> Bibliography Entry...".
- Choose "From document content" and "New".
- Define a bibliography entry and press "OK".
- Back in the previous dialog, verify the "Short name" lists your newly added
entry and press "Close".
- Again choose "Insert -> Indexes and Tables -> Bibliography Entry...".
- The entry you just added is gone from the "Short name" list.

As a work-around to this bug, you have to press "Insert" before pressing "Close"
in the "Insert Bibliography Entry" dialog and delete the inserted reference from
the document.

This is not a bug.
The dialog is called "Insert Bibliography entry".
If you don't do Insert at the end, you don't insert any entry in the document,
which means, when you reopen the dialog, that "From document content" will be empty.

For usability reasons, one may rename "Close" into "Cancel".
