Loosing DOCPROPERTY fields

Post by uhlxsmu » Sat Mar 02, 2019 1:38 pm

If I open a document from MS Word (.doc) that contains DOCPROPERTY fields, do some edits in TextMaker and then save it (still as .doc), all these fields are converted to normal text. How can I avoid this?

Please attach a sample file (created with MS Word and not saved with TextMaker). Thank you!

Not comprehensible (Word 2019, TextMaker 2018)

> Not comprehensible

What do you mean?
I downloaded the file again, and could open it without any problems in TextMaker Professional 2018 (rev 942.1129) 64bit
and Microsoft Word Version 1808, Build 10730.20280 from Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus.

The file contains a single line.
In Word, the line contains a DOCPROPERTY field.
In TextMaker I don't see any field but only its value ("Value in word"), and if I add a character, delete it again and save it,
and then open it in Word again, the field is gone and I only see the value.
Also, after saving it from TextMaker, the file is considerably smaller (12800 bytes compared to 19456 bytes originally).
The "file" command for the original Word file contains:
Composite Document File V2 Document, Little Endian, Os: Windows, Version 5.1
The "file" command for the file saved from TextMaker contains:
Composite Document File V2 Document, Little Endian, Os 0, Version: 1.0
