Comment 1 Joel Madero 2014-09-03 09:23:28 UTC
We need an actual set of reproducible steps with clear instructions. Saying properties aren't retained is not sufficient. Furthermore - is this new to 4.4? Also - what operating system are you running?

Marking as NEEDINFO - once you provide all the needed information mark as UNCONFIRMED. Thanks

Steps to reproduce:-
1) Open a new document in writer
2) Add some custom properties in this document(File -> Properties -> Custom Properties -> Add)
3) Save the document as docx.
4) Close the docx document
5) Open the docx document again and go to File -> Properties -> Custom Properties.
Observed, all the custom properties are disappeared.
