Description oisin_ 2008-10-30 15:26:12 UTC
Controls in a writer document are removed during mail merge.

To reproduce:
- create a new writer document
- add some merge mail fields from the Bibliography database
- show the Form-Controls toolbar 
- add some controls of different types
- run the mail merge wizard

in the resulting document only option fields (radio buttons) and text fields 
are preserved.

I would expected all types of controls to survive the mail merge.

Occurs also with OOo 2.4
The difference starts at step 7

Not really a useful document, isn't it?
Can be fixed by adding a paragraph break after the last control
