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 earlier.

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.

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.

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, apparently;

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 appreciated.
