Description Heiko 2021-02-17 06:22:54 UTC
Description:
We create an .docx document with apache poi and convert it to PDF with jodconverter (wich requires LibreOffice). The TOC (table of contents) was updated in previous versions by adding "<w:fldSimple w:instr="TOC \o "1-3" \h" w:dirty="true"/>" when you opened the generated .docx file. MS-Word and Google-Docs are still able to recognize it, but LibreOffice does not detect the instruction to create the TOC automatically. Also the "Update Index/Indices" does not appear on right-click.

When I add a TOC by hand in the opened .docx in LibreOffice, everything works fine.

It was tested with MacOS-bigSur(11.2) and MS-Windows-10.

Unfortunately i cannot attach the example files here.

Actual Results:
The "<w:fldSimple w:instr="TOC \o "1-3" \h" w:dirty="true"/>" is not recognized by  LibreOffice and sometimes leads to lacking UI.

Expected Results:
The TOC is automatically created and recognized in LibreOffice. The "Update Index/Indices" can be executed on right-click or triggered programmatically.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
Works with MS-Word and Google-Docs, just "Update Indexes" is required. The TOC instruction is recognized and applied.

In 6.4 an empty TOC was imported, which could be updated (although this did not happen automatically, like in Word).

In 7.0 this is missing since:

Comment 7 Mike Kaganski 2021-04-03 11:06:34 UTC
For the record: attachment 169797 [details], when opened in Word 2016, asks if one wants to refresh "fields that may refer to other files". Or rejected, the result looks absolutely identical to what LibreOffice shows after the patch mentioned in comment 5. I actually doubt that this is a regression, since under no conditions Word shows the result that we had prior to that. What we miss is handling of the 'dirty' attribute, which we always lacked.
