Description simonbr 2005-02-19 17:46:45 UTC
In the SDF file I find terms such as "field" and "field command" which appear to
be the same thing. 
Also, "field code" and "field name" appear to refer to the same concept.

SBA->LIZ: Please proceed.

This inconsistency does appear to exist, in German as well. However, we have
also had negative user feedback regarding the terms "field X" in general and may
completely rename such features in Office Later because most users do not
identify with "fields". 

Holding issue.

liz->mmp: (Transferred over from now closed as duplicate internal "reminder"
task 99895.) Maybe the results from the usability tests can help move us to a
decision. In any case, changing this term everywhere would be a huge task (365
UI strings with "field" in them). But I suggest starting with Writer strings
only and the corresponding menu entries in Impress/Draw and Calc, then moving
the fix across those apps as priority allows. I suggest leaving "field" as is in
Base and Basic because the users are used to that term there.
