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.

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.
