Bisected with bibisect-linux-64-5.2

not sure it's a regression though

@Justin, I thought you might be interested in this issue

bug libreofffice read-only_noPW.docx: the protection password has been removed.

Well, this certainly is NOT a regression. Before Oliver's patch, every part of the document was editable - not just certain form-text areas. 

My guess is that we don't support importing the w:sdt text field used in this form. SDT support is fairly new - starting in 2013-ish for dates only.

I didn't find a bug report that mentions this topic, although I imagine a duplicate exists somewhere.
Comment 4 paulo g. 2021-05-24 10:35:33 UTC
To "avoid" bug i have copy the file to a new blank document, and now it can be edit.

The example document in current master

Much better in

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 82ceab070de76d447505a598d07d5a9a1c48d80d
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: hu-HU (hu_HU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

Now the content controls are imported as fields and can be edited.

One hiccup still: there is a checkbox form control after 9. Documentos that can not be checked in Writer, unlike in Word. That is bug 99571.

This was essentially the same problem as bug 130565.
