Description bjlockie 2005-03-04 23:05:24 UTC
Insert/Field/"Page Number" displays "Page Numbers" in the document if
View/Fields is unchecked, it is plural in the document but not plural on the menu.

The text visible in the document when on the menu View - Field Names is marked
(activated), is not meant to correspond to the menu entry, but rather with the
text found in the "Type" list in the Edit Fields dialog (double-click a field to
open it). You'll notice that several of the field names are different than the
menu entry, not just this one.

Fields in general are a topic that need to be approached on whole in Office
Later (i.e. the next major release), so retargeting this issue to there so that
naming in general will be dealt with in conjunction with a possible revision of
the Edit Fields dialog and the Insert -Fields menu, etc.

(Liz->Liz: see C1 usability study suggesting name changes for German)

liz-mmp: please have a look at this in relation to the "field" terminology being
considered for issue 43142 (and possibly close this as duplicate thereof)
