I am using JR 4.0 with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 (OS: WinXP).
I often use the “cite special” functionality of JabRef to insert citations into LibreOffice and to add the exact page numbers where I cite from.
Now, after destroying this PageInfo (I supposed it is called like that as when styling it using jstyle the separation character is called PageInfoSeparator) in a 22page office file, I wonder where it is saved. I would expect it to be stored in the odt-file? Is there any means of restoring it? Where from?
To add a few details:
I edited the jstyle to customize the way citations are formatted (and also the formatting of the reference list) and there I set a wrong ReferenceParagraphFormat (‘wrong’ means I used one, that I did not define in the odt before), so when I asked JabRef to update the references and reference list in the odt, I received an error prompt from JabRef.
Later, after correcting the above mentioned and keeping on working on the document the whole day, I saw, that all the pageInfo in all the citation fields in the odt were destroyed.
I have a backup of a previous version of the odt including full and correct citations with page numbers, but to update my current work, it needs a lot of manual work either way - either to update the backup file or to re-insert each and every citation with jabref.
I will do the first mentioned, anyway, but would like to know for the next time:
I wonder, how and where this PageInfo is saved and if there is any means of restoring it, meaning: maybe it’s still there, only not displayed?
I saw in this post that author + year are handed to LibreOffice as one string. But how about the pageInfo?
Please, does anyone have a hint?
