That's my standard operating procedure any time I'm working with a
document with fields. The one "quirk" I've noticed is that fields that
have been flagged by the grammar or spell check don't always get
updated. Highly annoying, especially because things like "Figure 1."
are flagged as sentence fragments. I guess the solution to that is to
set "Do not check spelling or grammar" for such things, probably making
a couple new styles.
