Description V.K. 2012-11-26 18:23:59 UTC
It is a suggestion / feature request. 
Please implement the feature to convert all fields: TOC, bibliography, dates etc. to text. It would be great to show special dialog window with checkboxes to select what to convert. E.g. it can be useful to convert bibliography and bibliographical references to text (e.g. for better saving to DOC or RTF), but leave page numbers, TOC and footnotes as fields.

Thank you for your report!

IMHO a valid enhancement request, therefore set Status to NEW.

One can already “convert” single fields (e.g. a TOC) by copying it and pasting it,
but the reporter is right that it would be nice to have a UI option to change *all* or *some* types of fields to plain text throughout the complete document.

Basic macro which has needed functionality

Basic macro in this document replaces needed categories of fields.
This is something like DEMO.
Please, tell which functionality in this Macro should be implemented and which problem should be solved. And I will create final version of this Macro.
