Description richlv 2004-09-03 10:48:57 UTC
it seems that it's not possible to insert fields into drawing objects in writer. when adding text to an object, all choices in "fields" submenu are greyed out. it is possible to insert fields into drawing objects in impress and draw. when an objects with a field is copied from one of these components to writer, field becomes a "question mark field" that also resolces to question mark. inserting a field in writer and trying to copy/paste it into an object results in a plain text. the biggest problem is that right now it's not possible to apply fontwork effects to any text that contains fields (page numbers, dates etc).

That's true, the drawing objects come from the drawing engine and are not designed to contain Writer components.

hi. Here's some alternative way in case you need to insert some field inside of a drawing text object: just use Insert->Frame object instead of it.

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