I've got a document using fields & field prompt boxes which works really well, 
but I need to get the document into a .doc editable format.  On 'Save As', it 
just saves the static text, and doesn't send the dynamic field data.
Working on the principle that Word (its v97 I'm using here) can't understand 
the field data, is it possible - or could it be considered for future 
inclusion - that when you save as external formats, data held in fields can be 
written as 'normal' text?  
The functionality which this would bring would be very, VERY useful in mixed 
Office suite situations.

If you export a document in pdf format the field value is not displayed. Field 
name is displayed instead. 
For example, if you put a page footer with page number and export the document 
to pdf you should see the pdf with page numbers, but it does not work. "Page 
Number" is displayed in all foot pages instead.

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