Description sdc.blanco 2022-01-13 13:11:49 UTC
1. Insert - Fields - More Fields (Ctrl+F2)
2. Select User Field with "Standard" format, and insert variable.
3. Edit inserted variable (e.g., right-click, Edit Fields)
4. Change format to Text (e.g., select Additional Formats, then "text" in Category, Ok, Ok).
5. Edit Field again (to check that change was made)

Expected result: Format of field remains as "text" 
Actual result:  Format remains "standard"
