I checked the View - Fields command and it is not enabled.

The view status of the place holders should not matter at all. It toggles between "<Field Name>" and "Database.Table.Field Name". The latter lets you prove that each field is connected to the right source.

I can not reproduce your problem with a plain text connected database and LibreOffice 3.5 under Linux.

Here is a screen shot of what I see when using the F4 key.

And here is what I get when using the print dialog.

From that screen you call the print command (Ctrl+P)
Then you are prompted if you are going to print a serial letter which should be confirmed. Then you see a huge dialog with another instance of the data source window on top, a section where you choose the selection mode for the records (All displayed records | selected | and the output medium (printer, document or one document per record).

Some of these options suffer from the same old bugs since years, but printing _all_displayed_records_ into a _single_document_ should always work.

If your table has only one record or when you want to print only one record out of many records, you can
- switch the fields to show the names (View>Field Names)
- Click the row selector (grey box in front of each record) in order to select the record in the data source window. - Click the data-to-fields button in the data source window. Now the fields display the actual data of the selected record.
- Print (Ctrl+P)
- Do not confirm the serial print. Just print the document as shown.

The placeholders are never replaced with the data from the source file. I
can follow through and either print or save the document, but the data never
appears in the print or the saved file.

Before someone drops in with some absurd assumptions about Java: All this works without any Java.

Hope this helps,
