Hi Stuart.

Thank you for the attention paid to my suggestion for improvement. (nothing
new, of course, but expected).

I've been looking for the way to automatically format the references
included in the files of LibreOffice and that task is complicated when we
need to submit references in some specific format.

The database for bibliographies that we currently have int LibO is a great
help for the organization of the this  information, but if we could count
on an automatic way to format the references of these bibliographies
according to specific standards with only select a preset style of
footnote/endnote we would be enhancing the LibreOffice
capabilities, because we could present the same bibliographic reference for
different types of reports according to the required standard by only
selecting the corresponding style.

About the extension:  What does not attract me it is that  the extension
compels me to use another software out of LibO, and I believe that LibO is
too good to need a third party to carry out a task as simple as the format
to an information which we have in a database made with LibO.

Ramon, *

Using the existing Bibliography sample data base provides considerable
function already, based on Harvard style as I understand.

And frankly this is already well handled by 3rd Party extension--I'm a fan
of Zotero standalone (Windows) and cross-platform (via Firefox) . The
LibreOffice plugin(s) allows application of any .CSL and effective styling
of the parenthtical, footnote, endnote and bibliography. And have not used
it recently but the Mendely project is equally functional.

But always room to improve: have  open BZ enhancment for this in tdf#94418

Preliminary UX/Design team discussion ~Sep 2015 in

As to doing it fully ourselves (and maintaining it), IMHO we should
concentrate on providing  the style framework for those 3rd party projects
implementing the full set of .CSL--e.g. Zotero or Mendely rather than
struggle to provide just the few major styles.
