Simple 1 table database
Drag and Drop data from Writer into field in database Form does not commit data even when "save Record" icon is clicked on the navigation bar.
Cut & paste seems to work!

Four lines of text - something to drag & drop
Thanks for bugreport
not reproducible in 3.5.3 on Fedora 64 bit KDE
(but because bugs in Fedora, it works only if window not maximized)
NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 (RC2) German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 165a79a-7059095-e13bb37-fef39a4-9503d18] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).
0. open both sample documents, arrange windows size and position so that you
have both documents on screen side by side
1. in text.odb double click "Table1" (Forms)
> Forms view opens with record ID 0
2. Select word "contrary" in first line in text document
3. <control+x> for cut
4. Click into database "F1" behind text
> Caret flashes behind old contents
5. <control+v> for paste
Text "contrary" from text document appears behind "qwerty"
7. Select word "garden" in second row of text document with double click
8. click into selected word, drag and drop behind text in database form
> Text "garden" from text document appears behind "uiop"
9. 10 click into F3 behind text
> Caret flashes behind "asdfghjkl"
10. Click disk symbol in Formular Navigation Toolbar
Expected: no visible changes, but new contents will be stored and
after record forward - record backward fields are shown with
Actual: "garden" disappears permanently as soon as disk symbol clicked
Test result is a little different when I do the test with empty fields in record 3, here contents in F3 remains in Step 10 when I click disc icon, but will not be stored, after record backward - record forward "garden" is lost
Problem also appears when I drag and drop here from a comment input field, underpins suspect that problem is in Database, not in Writer.
Even when I drag and drop contents from one database field to an other I see the problem.
"not reproducible" is a too rare comment. Laptop battery empty, you were not able to test anything? ;-)
What exactly did you test and what exactly were your results? Only with that information we can find out whether different results are related to different proceedings or different OS distributions.

I placed my comment here in hope that someone will help in reproducing this bug. Thanks for help in reproducing.
This bug has been reported before Bug71954, but in Bug 71954 the behavior has been confirmed. It is described a little bit shorter as done here with 4 comments. So I set this bug as duplicate of Bug71954.
