Hi Dominik,
  I personally don't have plans to add write capabilities.  Unfortunately, I don't have any
justification at my day job to do this, and I don't have time outside of that to work on this.
 Sorry.
  There may be others on this list, though, who would be interested in contributing that portion.
 
  I've found the beans fairly easy to work with, and you may start there.  If you need a hook
to get to the underlying beans, let me know, and I'll be more than happy to add that.

        Best,

                 Tim

Subject: RE: Getting all ContentControls

Hi Tim!

I'm afraid, the implementation is still read-only. Are there any plans giving it write capabilities
in the future? Else, is there any approach to set data (text) to CONTENTCONTROL-fields via
Apache POI? For example: I'd like to use Apache POI for processing docx-template, where CONTENTCONTROL-fields
exist for addresses, dates, .... . Here, I am examining the capability of POI to fill these
fields with relevant data.

Cheers, Dominik :)
