Description Jaime T 2018-03-19 10:26:30 UTC
1. In Word create a new file, in the header insert a date field and set an easy to remember date, create a title field and set an easy to remember title.
Save the file (as .docx)
2. Open that file with writer, modify those fields and modify something in the normal text area, and save the file (in docx format) and close writer.
3. Open that file again with writer, the modified content is there.
4. Open that file again with word, the fields are not modified.

This is a content control, not field.
Also the date in the documents header is just text, not field or anything fancy.
