A document created with MS Word with a single field with default text as TEST and help text as <?TEST?>. Opening in LibreOffice and saving causes the field to be removed.
I can create a RTF document with MS Word (2010), with a legacy text form field (accessed through the developer toolbar -> controls -> legacy tools -> text form field), and save it as RTF format. When I open this document in LibreOffice, this field doesn't seem to persist (based on not being able to access the field properties and the field being lost are saving the document in LibreOffice).
Is there a good way to handle RTF documents with form text fields? (I also tried creating a document in LibreOffice with a form formatted field, but it also doesnt persist after saving as RTF).
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create RTF document in MS Word with a legacy text form field
2. Open document in LibreOffice
3. Make some changes
3. Save document
Form text field is lost after saving the document in LibreOffice
The form field should persist after saving in LibreOffice. Ideally, the ability to create these fields in a document from LibreOffice.
Operating System: Windows 7
Unsure what to make of this. When opening the test document with LO 4.3 latest nightly or MS Word all I see is the word test. I'm unable to spot any differences in the way this is displayed.
Is this bug still valid / reproducible with the latest LO release? Currently 184.108.40.206: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/
Could you please attach the document in question? That would help speed up the process of confirming and successively fixing this bug a lot. Thanks :)

RTF file with form field created in MS Word
@Foss, Should have provided the original file (with the form field) as a comparison. Here's the file with the field, created in MS Word. Just to summarise: When opening the file in LibreOffice, saving some changes, the form fields are lost - the text is still there, but it is no longer a form field.
At the time of the original bug report, it was version 220.127.116.11, I've just tested this with the latest version: 18.104.22.168, and it still behaves as described.
Still repro with LO 6.0 daily build (2017-09-22_22:54:52, 0db08432c69adc36ed464c1f7c8e672acb3752d) / Windows 7.
