Add VSTO fix for race condition to 6.1 branch

Updater is not able to update TextElements in a Locked ContentControl (One)
During the update of a document we need to unlock (and after lock again) all content controls to be able to change visibility of some content controls
Spellcheck does not work after document creation
When creating a document from VSTO add-ins, Word usually ignores several settings from the DOCX file. One such information is the current proofing state (spelling and grammar), which is set to CLEAN (no further checks needed). This will ignore all existing errors in the document. After this fix, the errors will be displayed.
Word "mailing function/recipient list/sorting crashes with Templafy add-in enabled.
When trying to sort recipients in the mail merge function in word the application would ecounter an error and close down. This has now been fixed so there is no issues with using this function in word while running the add-ins.
Versions from 6.1.30 to 6.1.39
Document creation is failing for specific templates
The format of customization for Word (key bindings) has a special format, where one argument can be OMMITED. Before the fix, this argument was hardcoded required and caused an exception when it was missing. Error occurred when opening a Word document with customizations from VSTO add-ins libraries, where the argument value was missing for at least one command.
Hide group upon document update doesn't completely hide
This release is fixing an issue without Document Content Updater feature. When a word document created from Templafy was updated for a particular group to hide, upon update completion, the content control wasn't fully hidden and instead left an extra space. While this problem was discovered on one specific template this was affecting all users with similar configuration and has now been fixed with this version of VSTO Addins.
Inserting an image into a child image within the grupped shape removes the shape group
Fix for an issue where inserting an image into a shape that is part of the group would replace the whole group. Now it only replaces the shape itself and binds it to the group it belonged.
The Templafy VSTO add-in does not startup with Word
On Windows versions below 1803 Word was getting an error message about missing entry point at the startup of add-in.
Open task pane automatically option in Outlook is not saved
Outlook Task Pane Manager is lazy loaded, meaning that all event handlers related to the task pane are not attached until the pane is opened for the first time. One of this event handlers is the one in charge of reading the :value from the Registry, meaning that the Library Add-in really know the value of the setting until the Task Pane is already opened.
The reason why the Task Pane Manager was lazy loaded was due to a performance issues when loading the Add-in during the Outlook start up, causing the Add-in to be disabled due to long loading times.
This performance issues has been addressed and solved following a different strategy, so we can safely get rid of the lazy loaded behavior of the task pane to listen to the Automatically Open Task Pane setting without causing new issues.
Image is cropped - update the design as well
Users of Office Add-ins noticed cropped Templafy logo on the offline warning page.
In this release, we fixed the cropped Templafy logo and improved the design of the page users see when offline or when an unexpected error occurs.
Inserting Object created from file into Word will make the open Excel instance unresponsive/ unable to close
When inserting Excel sheets into word while having Excel open, it would not be possible to close Excel afterward. This has now been fixed so the Excel application will not be blocked from closing.
Create/Update shape binding with Dynamics designer renames the shape in the selection pane
In Dynamics Designer when creating or updating a shape, the shape is no longer renamed and keeps its name
Version from 6.1.21 to 6.1.29
Images that are inserted into a PowerPoint / Word shape, can no longer be "moved" around if the shape does not have an outline.
When inserting an image into a shape in PowerPoint and Word, in order to keep the format of the shape before the insertion, the Add-in tries to apply a format to the shape's outline. This provokes an error when the shape didn't have an outline right after the image is inserted, not showing the Crop tool.
In this release we have fixed this issue, checking if the shape had an outline before applying any format to it, avoiding the error and allowing the user to Crop the inserted image.
Shift + N opens composer in VSTO
There was an issue where for Composer, Shift was being considered the key Control and therefore opening Composer when pressing Shift+N. This is fixed by considering the correct key for the shortcuts.
Default Value doesn't work for Dropdowns when offline
Dropdown default value for Offline mode (upgrade VSTO)
Users in offline mode experienced that default values for dropdowns were not working if the default value was coming from a binding to UserProfile. The binding needed to reference a data source selection id (that is an "alias" for a UserProfile dropdown field).
The problem was that the desired "Datasource Selection ID" was not saved to the offline user data (technically spoken the data was made equal to form fields that do not have that attribute). The fix required two steps:
updating endpoint for serving also the "Datasource Selection ID"
updating VSTO add-ins to correctly populate the binding data
Remove double space in Backstage Composer Description
Label showing the create document description in the Backstage of Office Applications when Composer is enabled has been fixed, removing the double space after the tenant name.
Shortcuts are failing in VSTO
Fix for an issue where the shortcut delegate function was being garbage collected, causing an exception
Composer: Opens on search
Update composer related shortcuts to make sure they are triggered correctly and don't interfere with other office shortcuts.
Composer: Doesn't work with AuthenticationMethod regKey
Fix for a case where the authenticationMethod registry key was ignored when opening composer. Now, if it is set, in a Composer window the authentication flow will continue correctly.
