Image showing current situation of fields without new paragraph between in LibreOffice

Open File https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=125792 (bug 100513)
In the right margin of page 2 and onward there is a frame with a table
The lower line there is
   "Ons kenmerk650806"
That should be
   "Ons kenmerk

Comment 1 Cor Nouws 2016-06-21 17:15:52 UTC
Mind that in the current version, the text box with fields already is better then in older versions.

Before, bold text missed and one other paragraph mark too.

Confirmed the situation on pg 2.

Comment 3 Xisco Faulí 2016-10-08 15:59:33 UTC
This is a regression as the line break can't be reproduced in Version:
Build ID: fc8f44e82de4ebdd50ac5fbb9207cd1a59a927e3
However, the overall layout looks very bad back in that version. I'm not sure this can be bibisected...

writerfilter: salvage a field parameter parsing train wreck

Before the fields were not imported as fields only plain text: but with a paragraph break between them.

Dear Cor Nouws,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
