Subject: Re: [office] Reformatting of Normative References



Your comments ring several bells of conversations with Michael Brauer
years ago about the manual editing of the references table.

I won't look to the app and will just manually edit with links etc. That
would be a cool ability to assign sorted bibiiographies, such as at the
heads of chapters (European style academic publishing).

Hope you are at the start of a great week!
