I have template in which I copy the required contents programatically and export
it to PDF.

The template has placeholders and I replace those placeholders with my required
content and then export it to PDF.

but PDF dont include those palceholder

kaav: please attach a sample document that shows your problem. Also please tell
which version you are using, version "1.0.0" did not have PDF export.

@od: don't know what "placeholders" could be meant, date and page number fields
work just fine.

I have attached Untitled 2.odt

It has <From> as Place holder now in my program I am 

checking whether the property is Placeholder then 

				xPropertySet.setPropertyValue("PlaceHolder", new String(from));

and then exporting that file to PDF but its not working.

Opening a file in writer only

According help: "When you click a placeholder field in the document, you are prompted to insert the item that is missing."

Click in odt has no response.
Export as pdf loses field - only text is printed.
