#1126 - Does not work properly
unfortunately, this plugin does not work properly .
Everytime, when a template is changed, the merge looses fields, that worked properly before the change of the template. In all cases, the spell check was disabled on all fields after the changes, although I don't understand, why the spell check enables again on a field, when a new line was inserted. And I also don't understand, why the new inserted field is merging correctly, but the field just in the line below isn't merging then, which is the problem, that comes up in most cases. Seems, that inserting a new line is causing problems with this plugin.
This bad results occured with Word 2010 and 2013.
Right now, preparing templates for this plugin is painfull and time consuming and it seems, that it is impossible to control the behaviour of the field merge. That's a very poor experience !
Can you provide any additional feature or hidden information, that allows to get control over the whole merging ? Also a list of all features, that should be disabled in Word completely to makes this plugin work without problems could be a help, or a list of Word versions, that work, in fact just anything, the lets the frustration disappear ?
