In-place editing of Input Fields

Purpose of this page is provide information on the solution for Issue 33737 . This information should serve the corresponding quality assurance efforts. It can be also used as the source for the corresponding user interface changes for the users.


Input Fields - three of a kind

We have three fields which are all named 'Input Field' in the user interface each for different purpose.

Text Input Field

This is a field to prompt the user for an input. The field has a description and its content holds the user's input.

In the OpenDocument file format (ODF) such a field is represented by ODF element <text:text-input>.

When importing Microsoft Word documents (binary file format, *.doc) Microsoft Word fields FILLIN and FORMTEXT are imported as Text Input Fields.

The user interface to create such a field is found in the Fields dialog (Menu - Insert - Fields - Others) on pane Functions. Here the user has to choose Type 'Input Field'.

User Variable Input Field

This is a field to prompt the user to set the value of a user variable. The value of a user variable is the same throughout the complete document.

In ODF such a field is represented by ODF element <text:user-field-input>.

The user interface to create such a field is found in the Fields dialog on pane Variables. In advance the user has to create a user field. Then the user has to choose Type 'Input Field' and has to select the corresponding created user field.
