Description Oli Boorman 2015-08-12 20:11:00 UTC
Could the 'Fields' dialog used in Writer be ported to Draw (and Impress).

In Writer, we have the ability to insert various properties into a document as fields. This can achieved via Insert > Fields > More Fields ...

Currently in Draw, users can only insert simple properties  such as page number, author or file name as fields.

When using Draw for desktop publishing, more advanced document properties (such as document revision and last modified date) would be very useful, owever currently we have no way of using them. It would be great if they could be added directly into documents as fields. It will also provide a more consistent experience across the LibreOffice applications.
