Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-22 19:48:04 UTC
After inserting a checkbox form control in Writer and save it to a DOC file the checkbox label is missing. It might be related to the fact that it's exported as a MSO legacy control. It would be better to save it as an MSO activeX control, since activeX control has a better match with LO checkbox control (e.g. appearance, properties, positionin).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert a checkbox control (Insert -> Form Control -> Check Box)
3. Anchor it as character
4. Save it in a DOC file
5. Open it in MSO or LO

Actual Results:  
Checkbox's label is missing after reopening the document.

Expected Results:
Label should be preserved.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
