I just spent many hours building a master document which links
together all the chapters of a book, and everything was going fine
until somehow, without any conscious action on my part, it embedded
all the linked documents rather than keeping them as links. Can this
be undone, that is, restoring the original links?

This embedding action defeats the purpose entirely, as I need the
ability to independently edit the linked documents. Then when I reopen
the master document, it normally would display all the updates to the
linked documents. I use Master Documents all the time in this way, and
this mysterious embedding action has never happened before.

Hi David,
I'm sorry I can't answer your question.

I noticed that your message is in the middle of the existing thread
"libreoffice-users] Re: [tdf-announce] The Document Foundation
announces LibreOffice 3.5.7".  That looks like you hijacked the thread
and changed the subject.  First, that is poor etiquette, second your
are less likely to get a good response since it is buried in an
existing thread and does not stand out as a new thread.  Many of
us have over 100 messages per day and don't bother looking at a
thread that is not of interest to us.  Please, in the future, compose a
new message which will have its own thread.

Thanks, Tom
