Add formulas @DocAuthorFields and @DocReaderFields

In our applications, we have lookup view column formulas like this to read a document's write access on the view level without the need to open the documents:


@DocFields; "fld";

@If(@Begins(fld;"a_") | @Begins(fld; "al_");fld;"")




_authors:=_authors : @GetField(_authorfields[i]));


This works because we use prefixes for different item names (a_ for single authors, al_ for author lists).

For applications where we cannot expect this item naming schema, this is no help.

Please add new formulas @DocAuthorFields / @DocReaderFields to make this work for all kinds of databases.

    Thinking about this topic, @DocAuthors / @DocReaders might be even more useful, which would collect the values of all author / reader items.
