Description Robin K 2020-01-28 12:21:03 UTC
Description:
When in a .docx document that uses field names, enabling view -> field names (ctrl-f9) shows only the field names in the header. Opening the same document in word allows me to view and edit all the field names.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached document in libreoffice
2.enable viewing field names (ctrl-f9)

Actual Results:
Don't see any of the field names, except the 2 in the header

Expected Results:
See all field names


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes



Additional Info:
To see what should have happened, open the file in MS Word

Alt+F9

Alternatively, File -> options -> advanced -> check 'Show field codes instead of their values'

FYI I'm verifying the described steps using my office 2010 and office 365 installs, so this *should* apply to 2016, but I can't personally check.

You can shade all fields by going to File -> options -> advanced -> Field Shading = 'Always' (setting below the previously mentioned field codes checkbox)

On the first page to the right of the string 'Author' there are some field names.
From page 2 onwards they are literally everywhere.

They are also in the center of the header, not just to the right for page numbering.

Following attachment is a screenshot of my view in word 365.

Word has 'show field codes' enabled, and shades all fields for clarity.

Realised I uploaded the wrong test doc, one without field names. My apologies
