Description Cor Nouws 2017-10-18 20:08:40 UTC
as per subject.
The option means that Placeholder fields (Ctrl+F2 > Functions) are included in the resulting PDF.
Comment 1 Cor Nouws 2017-10-18 20:11:10 UTC
(NB Text in UI should be  "Placeholders" as in Fields dialog, not "Place holders")
Comment 2 sdc.blanco 2020-10-11 23:27:56 UTC
@Cor:  Does the current help page address this issue?  (WFM?)  


Or is the idea to add a "note" that placeholders are created with (Ctrl+F2 > Functions).

It looks like the .ui uses "Placeholder"
