Plug-in destroys xpath - reference relations / replaces them by generically named ones


From time to time, something replaces all entries od:xpath=someMeaningfulDescriptor with od:xpath=xXX, where XX is some running number. Since od:condition and od:repeat are not affected and the <w:dataBinding/> element keeps unchanged, I rather suspect the Word plug-in does this weird thing. The someMeaningfulDescriptor is complemented with the xXX xpath element in the ('','xpaths') custom xml document part, and you cannot maintain the xpath expressions in one point any more.

Why would someone do this? Repairing this manually for 120+ bindings is really annoying.

This could have happened if you were able to press "Add CustomXML to this docx" when the docx already contained XPaths. should stop this happening.
