U4-5850 - Dictionary items as property description fails in the UI.

Created by Stephan Lonntorp 20 Nov 2014, 12:04:58 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 06:40:03

When assigning a dictionary item key to a property description field, the value is saved. However, the set values are not displayed in the UI, so if you save the document type again, the descriptions (that are dictionary keys) for all properties on that document type are emptied.

Tested and reproduced on multiple installs of Umbraco 7.1.8

It seems to only affect dictionary items that lack a value in the dictionary.

Steps to reproduce:

Create a dictionary item, set its value to something Create another dictionary item, leave its value empty

Create a document type with two properties, set the properties' description to the two items, respectively

Only the description whose value is set in the dictionary is persisted.
