[Upstream] [hardy] RFE: Ability to cross-reference to a Number

Bug #44994 reported by Aaron Whitehouse
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openoffice.org (Ubuntu)
Won't Fix

Bug Description

I often write essays etc. as a Numbered list, e.g.

1. Introduction
[1.1] Blah Blah
[1.2] Blah Blah

2. Next issue
[2.1] As stated in *[1.2]*
[2.2] Blah Blah

It would be excellent if I could cross-reference to a (paragraph) number instead of just a page. The lack of this ability prohibits me from using OOo to write contracts etc. for law because I am constantly changing clauses and need the references to update.

Currently, as I understand things, I can only reference to a page that a reference is on, or to what I highlighted and made into a reference (but I cannot highlight paragraph numbers).

Using Dapper Beta, fully updated.
