If it doesn't seem to do anything then it might be worth renaming it back
over the auto-generated one to make sure you get back all your normal
settings and tweaks.

I'll try that.

Again it might be worth looking into using Zotero as an
Extension/Add-on/Plugin (actually it's an independent project that can be
plugged into MS Office AND LibreOffice/OpenOffice and maybe others too)
since you also seem to be pushing the default one further than most of us.

I do not see how Zotero is relevant to what I am doing.  I am
maintaining a large hundreds-of-pages technical document which I
occasionally release as a PDF.   The support for Master Documents in
OpenOffice/LibreOffice make this feasible, especially in addition to the

But cross-references are a bit of a pain, as I can see the references in
the Navigator one cannot 'use' them, out-of-document cross references
have to be manually keyed into.  That works once the document is
exported as a single document, but now there is the issue with the
reference just not rendering. 

It is hard to believe I am the only one using LibreOffice in this way -
as this is the point of a full-featured office suite, to ease the create
and maintenance of 'real' documents.

Version Build ID 410m0(Build:2)
I have a large multi-document document that contains many cross
references.  This has always worked.  Recently however references to
"Page" to no work.  They render as empty.  The area is still `hot` and
jumps to the related section.... but nothing displays but the gray hot
area, no page#.  Cross references to Reference display the Reference
text, but references to Page# display nothing.
So I have, for example, text that reads '''(see "Wiki", pg.)''' where
both "Wiki" and the missing number after "pg." references a section of
the document.
I test the cross references by exporting the master document to a ODT
which combines all the documents into one - and thus makes the
cross-document cross-references work.
