Description Jaroslav Semančík 2014-10-02 20:32:39 UTC
Created attachment 107235 [details]
The RTF document that is opened without brackets

The last line of the attached document should be enclosed in brackets. It is opened correctly in MS WordPad and in OpenOffice 3.2.1. But opened in LibreOffice the brackets are missing.

Confirming. The SYMBOL fields are not updated by LO.
Comment 2 Urmas 2014-10-03 03:21:57 UTC
Apparently it's the norm for Word to save that field with the empty result.
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2015-04-06 19:14:01 UTC
Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1
