Description Maxim Britov 2021-06-10 08:33:11 UTC
Checked on 5.0 - 7.2


1. Open LO Writer
2. Menu Form > Design Mode [on]
3. Menu Form > Text Box
4. Insert text box to page, disable Design Mode, enter text in Text Box
5. Save as DOC/DOCX/ODT files.
6. Open every saved file, change text in Text box, resave in same format
7. Reopen files and check. ODT contains new text, DOC/DOCX lost changes.

If you check Text Box option after reopen doc/docx you will see old text as "Default text" and changes in Default text will be saved after save/reopen.
But text editing in text box will lost every time.

It seems something wrong and text saved as Default text, not as TextBox text.

Repro 7.2+. Couldn't find existing report. 
Form started being saved from 6.0 and bug 50097, but it wasn't really checked.
