Open attached document -> the field in between the tables is not available anymore.

I see this has been targetted for release 3.2.  Is there a reason it's not 3.1
(or 3.0.2 if such existed)?  Typically regressions are treated as a high priority.

According to our new regression issue handling for the 3.4 relrease the field
priority is now used as the order we want to work on them, no longer as a
"severity". The high number of regressions in the WW8 filters makes it necessary
to prioritize them as we won't be able to fix all of them for 3.4. We decided to
first focus on the export. Thus most regressions in the import filter now get
priority "P4", what means that they will be reevaluated in the next release cycle.

Reset assigne to the default "".
