Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 155177
Bibliography not formatting correctly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
When inserting a bibliography, the number or reference from the main document is
not being inserted prior to the actual details
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a number of bibliographic references
2. Insert a bibliography
The reference for the publication should be the first item on the bibliography.
For example in the text there maybe the lines
Schildt maintains that the correct return type for main() is void
 is defined as anything
In the bibliography, this should be outputted as
 Schildt, H. C for Beginners.. (whatever)
I can't see anyway of generating the !
The bibliography should be have the reference prior to any details.
This has not changed since OOo pre 1.0. I moaned about it then as well (to the
OOo developers and at a conference!!!!)
For an example, please use the file attached to bug #155176 as this also has the
bibliographic references for that document defined.
You'll have to open a bug against qa.openoffice.org for such a feature change
with OOo. It's too wide an issue to address specifically in a distribution
