Note....if record = on and you change the file name (save as something else), the field will change but there will not be any indication via change colors et al that the field changed. This started circa 3.5.2 Before that, such changes to fields would be recorded via change colors et al so reader would know its a new copy.
Only work around I found is to manual delete and reinsert fields with every new edition
