Custom properties dialog window

Both in Writer and in Draw it is possible to add "Custom Properties" to a document.
But in Draw it is not possible to add them in text fields.

It would be very helpful, e.g. in multi-page diagrams to have a "Revision" field replicated the same on all pages, which coulfd be updated simply editing the Custom Property.

Indeed. In Writer we have Insert - Field - More Fields which opens a dialog that allows us to select custom fields defined in File - Properties.

It should be very useful in Impress/Draw as well.

This has already been requested in bug 53548, so I'm marking this one as DUP.
