I have a text favorite based on a text field.
This works fine when placing as text. When I try to use the same text favorite to place a Note the resulting text does not update if I change the property (Item Type value).
It does pick up the correct value but will not update if I change the value later using Properties. The same applies if I create a plain text field (no Text Favorite).
This is Tool Settings:
Thank you Krister for your file. I would like to inform you that this issue resulted in a Bug 696093: "MS_AUTO_UPDATE_FIELDS = ALWAYS is not working for Notes".
As we said I opened a ticket for you and you will be updated on this. Thank you for reporting the issue.
I want to notify, as Jon said, that there is an old defect on the same issue but for text in reference, Bug 661377: "Text Fields linked to elements in reference with the display off do not update"
I hope that this helps you,

That's not the problem I reported, but thanks for your comment! The problem I noted was that Text Fields in cells did not update correctly, and that problem was fixed several Updates ago.
