Description Basta 2013-04-22 11:41:54 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new section in a text document
2. Add a input field in that section
3. Write protect the section
4. Write some text in the input field and close it

Current behavior:
When the input field is changed or edited, the field is not updated in the window. All changes are there if you open the input field for editing again, but it does not show in the window after closing the input field. After forcing window update with F9 it looks fine.
Expected behavior:
After editing and closing a input field the new content of the input field should be present in the window.

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Comment 1 IT 2013-08-26 06:30:24 UTC
I can confirm this bug still exists with version 4.0.4 4.0.5 and 4.1.1 RC2

Windows 7 x64
Comment 2 Rudolf Kollien 2013-11-15 12:44:32 UTC
This bug still exists in (Linux).
Last version seen working correct was 3.6.x
It doesn't matter, if the section is protected with a password too or not.

This bug is very annoying in forms where it is essential, that the user can only fill in fields but is not allowed to change the text.

Hitting key F9 or refresh via menu works. Then the new content of the input field is shown.

Check fields in protected sections work like expected: checking/unchecking is shown immediately. Seems the bug is only related to input fields.

It's correct in, - Ubuntu 12.04 x86

Problem still reproduced until and

@Rudolf, I change version back since that indicates oldest version when problem seen.
Comment 5 Matthew Francis 2014-12-04 04:21:10 UTC
In and current 4.5 master, input fields in protected sections are already able to be edited

However, input lists (see the file in bug 70307, which was earlier closed in favour of this bug) still aren't. Editing the subject to suit.

Results of bibisecting in 43all (for input lists):
