The Writer Guide documentation says I can use my own custom document property
instead of a variable in a condition statement.
“Using document properties to hold metadata and information that changes” on
page 363 described how to set up a custom document property. You can use
that document property as the variable in your condition statement, or you
can create another document property field specifically for conditions.
----- (Chapter 14 "Working with Fields" of Writer Guide, page 377 in PDF)
When I type the name of the property, in a "Conditional text" function in
the Insert Fields Other dialog, I always get the first phrase, never the
second. So it seems my conditional test is being ignored or incorrectly
always returning True.
After seeing "DocInformation:" displayed when I choose View > Field Names, I
tried prepending that to my property name in my Conditional text function,
But that did not help. I always see the first phrase of the conditional
I get success when using a variable.
Is there some trick to accessing a Document Property in a function?
