Description HansPL 2020-04-30 09:19:56 UTC
When exporting an ODT text document to PDF, data fields with the modification date are exported showing the current date instead of the correct modification date.  

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a text document with a data field Document Info: Modified; save it. (Option “Printing sets Document modified” is disabled.)  
2. Wait a day (or fiddle with your system’s date). 
3. Open it again:  the data field shows the old date of saving. 
4. Export it to PDF:  the PDF shows the current date *WRONG* 
5. LO still shows the old date of saving. 
6. Print to an printer:  the printout shows the old date of saving. *CORRECT*
7. Close the document:  LO asks to save it although option “Printing sets Document modified” is disabled.  

Actual Results:
The PDF shows the current date *WRONG* 

Expected Results:
The PDF should show the modification date (of last saving).  

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
A workaround seems to be to open the document read-only for exporting.

On further experimenting:  this seems to happen when the ODT resides on a Samba share, where an older PDF already exists to be overwritten or I enter a different name for the export.

It must be under pretty unique circumstances, because anytime I save/export your document - including to a mounted samba folder - the date remains April 28.

I'm going to mark it as works for me. If you come up with clear steps to reproduce and want to re-open - that's fine.
