Description mgentili 2007-09-17 11:05:51 UTC
If I have a text form field in MSWord and open the document in Writer, Writer 
sees the field ok but loses the constraints (max length, data type, ...)

If I save the document in .doc and open it again (both in Office and OO) the 
field type is lost (it is recognized as a normal field, but has no category).
The resulting element is similar to a field, but when you open the properties 
in MSWord it opens the form create interface.

This does not happen to combo boxes, which are correctly recognized.
