Hi :)
Yes, looks like Stuart has already bumped the thread for you.  Also looks
like we were following different time-lines, as happens sometimes, so was
only giving advice already posted in the bug-thread.  Still work-arounds
are not as good as actual fixes so lets hope it generates interest!
Regards from
Tom :)

Thanks for sharing your comments Tom. I've since heard from one of the
developers on the bug thread, which clarified that the problem started to
appear in As a workaround, I've downgraded to and things
are working as expected.

Hi :)
It is possible to install several versions of LibreOffice in parallel
with each other or just reinstall the older version of LibreOffice.  It
looks like the current best work-around is to go back to the  4.1.4 or

Having an older version of LibreOffice is not such a big problem as it
would be for proprietary software.  Almost all of the updates and
upgrades are almost entirely about adding functionality, NOT about
patching security.  Security is dealt with 1st as a top priority at all
levels of coding so it's extremely rare to suddenly need a patch.  I'm
running 3.5.7 on a couple of machines with no problems.

Once you post a bug-report there is no knowing how long it will be
before some dev suddenly becomes keen to fix it.  Some companies employ
devs to work on LO so that they can force certain issues to be focussed
on ahead of others.  Individuals have various options too but mostly
it's a sit&wait.  Sorry!

Hmmm, one legitimate way to "bump a thread" in the bug-tracker is to
report that it's still a problem in a newer release, preferably when the
release is in beta-testing or just after release.  Like right now might
be a good time to quickly check it still happens in 4.2.3 and if it is
add a line saying "Still in 4.2.3 on Windows", ie keep it short.

    Hi :)
    I don't know anything about the problem at hand.  "End note" is a
    Microsoft tool and MS are infamous for not playing well with others.
      For bibliography and indexing it is worth exploring Zotero,

    I'm not sure if it does the type of thing you want.  It's possible
    that it might even make it easier and more automated but it might
    depend on where you are getting you notes from.  If it's from
    on-line research then Zotero might be a real boon.

        I'm running into a problem in (and possibly even earlier
        releases) with endnotes/references getting corrupted after
        copy+paste operations. I reported the bug on the bug tracking
        site, and attached a small file to show how it can be reproduced:

        I wanted to ask here if anyone might have any suggestions for
        workarounds in the meantime. The document that I'm working on is
        a large book with sections for each chapter. In each section, I
        create endnotes and also cross-references to the endnotes (some
        references are mentioned multiple times). It's these
        cross-references that get messed up after cutting+pasting
        arbitrary text.

        I haven't figured out what pattern of endnote definitions and
        cross-reference additions triggers the problem (and thus what to
        avoid as a possible workaround), but the document attached in
        the bug report shows an example. Any ideas would be greatly
