think that LO should have (a little bit) better bibliography entry
system. Every thing works just fine, but I miss some features with thing
I'm writing now.
When I do Insert - Indexes an tables - Bibliography entry I can insert
entry from the document or from Bibliography database. Thing is that the
reference system I use require shortening of textnotes:
Some text some text [author, year_of_publishing: page_of_citation], some
text from the same author and the same book, just another page, so I
should not enter authors name (short name from bibliography database), I
should put word "ibid." instead [ibid: page].
Now I can't insert [ibid: page] as field or to relate it somehow with
bibliography field inserted above. Since that kind of reference is not
field, if I change something in my document, I need to hunt all these
inserts and change it manually to [author, year: page] format because
[ibid...] works only if the first reference before [ibid...] is from the
same author and the same book.
Think that feature should be added to LO: Insert - Indexes and tables -
Bibliography entry and the dialog box should have some additional
fields: check box and empty text box. Now, I should be able to choose a
bibliography entry from bibliography database, then chose that new check
box and enter the word I wont to display in document. Chosen
bibliography entry from dialog box should be related to the word from
LO should connect [ibid:page] with [author, year: page] and display
[ibid:page] only if right above Bibliography entry (as field) is the
same one we connected earlier. If I change the document and remove above
bibliography entry field, [ibid:page] should change to [author, year:page].
I'm forced to use [ibid: page] and I'm unable do it as fields - now I
have to hunt down every manual [ibid:page] I make.
Is there way to do this?
Also, think it should not be a problem to add some additional
information in the same place with word and character count. Think it
would be nice if we had:
Words (characters) [cards] | 1249 (7568) [4,204]
Look here (well, I'm not writing in Serbian but idea of typography card
stays the same):
Now I have to open KCalc over and over again. Think that should not be
very complicate to add?
