OpenTBS doesn't merge blocks when using tab stops in the document

In the content.xml corresponding blocks look like below:

[</text:span><text:span text:style-name="T4">Rechnung.Gesamtbetrag]
[<text:span text:style-name="T7">Rechnung</text:span>.<text:span text:style-name="T7">Zahlungsziel</text:span>]

Merging may even break the integrity of the document completely leaving LibreOffice unable to read it.

Re: OpenTBS doesn't merge blocks when using tab stops in the document

Hi DenisW,

This problem is well know and should be mentioned in the demo templates soon.
When the TBS tag is split in the inner XML, then it is not merged, or badly merged.

The workaround is to select the TBS tags, then cut, and then paste as « unformatted text ».
This should avoid inner split.

Regards,
