I use word a fair bit, and there are a number of add-ins I would like to write, but I can’t think of a way to do any of them without being able to essentially add variables to the text, which I think could only be done with field codes. I was really disappointed to find out that this feature doesn’t exist yet. (Or maybe I’m just missing something)

When you add field code support also a method to force fieldcodes to UPDATE. This is especially important for DocProperty fields, for example.
