My own fault of course, but sometimes I begin with with a passage that says
something like

"See [Blah-Blah] on page [99]"

where the items in the braces are actually cross-references. Then I later
delete whatever that was referring to without realizing something was
referencing it and end up with

"See Error: Reference source not found on page Error: Reference source not

Is there a way to search for dangling references like this in LibreOffice? I
realize that attempting to issue a warning saying "you can't delete what you
just tried to delete since something is referencing it" (sort of like a
relational database might do) would be fairly impractical, particularly if
you're trying to delete a huge chunk of text, but being able to do such a
search would be a good addition to preparation for printing and so forth.

Thanks for any assistance.

If, by the way, no such thing exists, might that be a generally useful
enhancement request?
