Description amy2008 2009-07-08 07:46:21 UTC
Can reproduce it in OOo2.4.1 Writer, Impress and Drawing

Let's us choose two OOo builds for testing, like OOo3.1 and DEV300m51
In OOo3.1, Tools - Options - - User data, set First name/Last
name/Initials as F3.1/L3.1/I3.1
In DEV300m51, Tools - Options - OOo-dev - User data, set First name/Last
name/Initials as F300m51/L300m51/I300m51

How to reproduce it
1 Create an Writer doc with OOo3.1 and save it as FieldsAuthor.odt
2 Open the file created at step 1 with DEV300m51
3 In DEV300m51, Insert - Fields - Other, Fields dialog opens, switch to 
  Document tab, Type:Author, Select: Name, OK

Insert the Author of DEV300m51, but not user data in OOo3.1

should insert the Author of OOo3.1

According to help doc
Inserts the name of the user who first saved the document. 
To view the name of the author, choose File - Properties, click the General tab,
and then look at the Created line. The name of the author is appended to the
Created line only if the Apply user data check box is selected.

In Drawing and Impress, Insert - Fields - Author, insert user data from
DEV300m51, it is the same as Writer (Insert - Fields - Other, Fields dialog
opens, switch to Document tab, Type:Author, Select: Name)

MRU->ES: pls have a look, it refers to fields in Writer.
Comment 3 eric.savary 2009-07-17 11:58:10 UTC
@OS: as described.
Comment 4 Oliver Specht 2009-07-17 13:52:35 UTC
->ufi: The error is in the help page. 
The name of the creator is displayed with the field from
Document/Author uses the name from tools/options/general/user data.This is not
necessarily related to the Creator of the document. 
Draw+Impress don't have a creator field.
