A LibreOffice document with a custom Yes/No property saved as incorrect RTF

LibreOffice has a Yes/No custom property whereas RTF has a Boolean property. LibreOffice does not save a Yes/No property properly in an RTF file and the property is lost when the file is opened in LibreOffice again. The faulty file may cause problems with other word processors when they open it.

I would suggest that the LibreOffice Yes/No property is mapped to the RTF Boolean property in a way (for LibreOffice to RTF) that Yes is mapped to 1 and No is mapped to 0 and (for RTF to LibreOffice) that 0 is mapped to No and all other values are mapped to Yes. In the latter case, only mapping 1 to Yes might be OK and produce an error in all other cases, except it might make it impossible to open a document despite it would otherwise be OK.

Document property missing after reopening a file with a Yes/No property saved as RTF

The property should have survived the trip through RTF but did not

RTF file - LO 6

I can not confirm with Version:
Build ID: e0bafa78e3ad0df397d78cd65ad19bd5b07dc5f2
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@70-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2017-07-20_22:42:49

After resave I see Yes/No property in the RTF file.

Seems to be fixed in dev version. Please could you test with dev version?
Thank you
