Description jvromans 2003-12-31 11:10:26 UTC
When a text frame is created using the appropriate draw function (big T icon),
it cannot contain anything but plain text. In particular, it cannot contain a
page number, date stamp, or anything special.

A text frame, created this way and anchored to the header frame, is the only
possibility to get something on the page style. Not being able to have it
contain anything but plain text severely limits its functionality.

Note that this and other related problems can be more generally and elegantly
solved by allowing any frame to become part of the page style. The code is
there, the only thing needed (as far as I can guess) is settings on the frame
property panel "Include in page style" and "Include contents as well".
See e.g., issues 16181, 16182, 16182 and 24011.

Not defect!
This kind of frame will handled as draw-object and not as frame.

> Not defect!... Changed to ENHANCEMENT.

Not to quibble, but it sure looks like a defect: I can create a Drawing with
date/time fields, and paste it into a Writer doc, where it looks perfectly happy
on the screen and in print.  However, the fields completely disappear if the doc
is saved & re-loaded (OOo 1.1).

That's data loss in my book!

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
