Description peoman 2004-04-23 13:16:53 UTC
It seems that RTF specs offer the possibility to insert a special field which is
number of pages (NUMPAGES). Opening a RTF created with Word does work and shows
the number of pages. If I save the file with OOo, when reopening it, the number
of pages is now harded-coded. So if I add a new page, number of pages is hard
coded, and we can get for example : page 3/2
Please add support of NUMPAGES

Please Attach the documents which make this problem, so we can test it/faster 
to confirm.  
(Without the documents, we cannot confirm the problem easily/need more time)
Don't forget to cut other part of the documents, so the file size is small, 
but we still able to see the problem.

and step by step how to reproduce this problems.

Export to RTF did not have a high priotity in the past (and also now). Thus,
many things, which the import is capable of converting, is not available in the

MRU->MMAHER: I don't know if you have sufficient capacities implementing this
for OO 2.0. Thus I pass it over to you for OO later at first.

I'd be happy to assist in solving this, I can't imagine this one field to be too
hard to implement.
Could you point me in the right direction where to find "save as rtf" in the
source code?
