I'm a little puzzled by this oddity. I've been a long time user of OpenOffice and recently switched over to LibreOffice 3.5.0. In Writer, I'm trying to Insert Other fields, but without any success. The default fields in the initial pull down menu work just fine in my documents. However, when I try to use any of the OTHER fields, either via the pull down menus or Ctrl F2 the results are always a gray blank space inserted and no text. Example would be the Modified Date and Time fields. Just to gray blank spaces are inserted. Any thoughts as to what I am doing incorrectly, if anything?
Thanks. Some specs below.
Current software platform is;
LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3 Build ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735
MS WIN7 Home Premium 6.1.7601 SP1 Build 7601

Hi Rus, I get grey boxes with the Field Names in them initially, not blank grey boxes, so I am not sure if this is the same problem as you have. It seems it defaults to displaying Field Names and not Field Values. Anyway if you haven't already, try toggling View/Field Names or Ctrl F9 as this switches between displaying Field Names and displaying Field Values. (Vista 32 SP2, LibreOffice 3.5.2 Release Writer)
