Description Gergely Rácz 2014-03-17 16:51:54 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Insert a User defined field in a Writer (Insert->Fields->Others...->Variables->User Field)
2. Edit the inserted field (write some text in it).
3. Push Ctrl+Z 


The inserted field does not change.

Expected Results

The inserted field should undo the update of the field.


This issue does not appears any of the other fields (I have tested).

When you use the Undo command, it shows that the Undo command has ran (the redo button is available). If you give the command again it will delete the inserted field.

Confirmed, the undo/redo indicate 'Modified field' - set as New, change OS to all Version:

Issue is quite reproducible with Version: (x64)

Well it turned even worse (updating a user defined field that was changed to Text format will reset the format to 'Standard'). But that's another bug...
