Description kaker 2009-05-19 19:47:40 UTC
Using "Text" object from "Drawing" toolbar doesn't allow to insert any Field
inside of it (they grayed in Insert->Field menu while you edit the text box).

Also opening MS Word's document with an text object containing page number field
inside makes OpenOffice duplicate some random number on it in all pages (e.g.
page number displayed as number 8 on all pages).

This may be really useful because someone's pages may contain some frame (some
border for document containing field) defined by some standard which define that
a page number must be placed in some strict place in such frame.

Same behaviour in Windows XP (Ooo310m11 build 9399) and ubuntu 8.10 (Ooo2.4.1)
