Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-16 12:44:16 UTC
This one is a spin Off from "Bug 38451 - TEMPLATES: Letter Wizard for Formal Personal Letter takes instead of User Field"

In Writer Menu 'Insert - Fields - Other - Variables - User Field - ..." You will find several Address Variables, but Forename and Surname are missing. 

Forename and Surname variables are required for Letter Wizard and Fax Wizard, for Details please see a.m. Bug Comm. 6

How to fix:
1. find out what Variable names Wizard needs
2. Leave a comment in Bug 38451 so that Templates can be amended
3. Add new LibO User Field Variables

This never worked in LibO (and OOo)

No clue, the Wizard is in Java? Please correct Whiteboard if I am wrong!
Comment 2 Julien Nabet 2013-01-16 12:54:30 UTC
Rainer: perhaps I'm wrong but I think it's one of the wizards which has been converted from Java to Python by Xisco.

Xisco: one for you?

I've read bug 38451 and I'm still not sure exactly what this bug entails. Please give simple, clear repro steps in a comment on this bug.

Status -> NEEDINFO
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2014-02-27 23:25:25 UTC
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
