I want to create a field in the header of a document that will automatically pull the title of the document from the cover page. I know I can do this using a bookmark on the title page and a field in the header to pull the contents of the bookmark, but this is for a standard template and when people delete the title and type their own title, the bookmark goes away too. Is there a way to make the bookmark "permanent" and not tie it to the actual content?

I know I could also use a field to automatically insert the Title text from the document properties, but I don't trust people to actually know how to go to the properties and change the title, is there a way to automatically update the title property baed on text within the document?
