The docx file in question
I have a letter template from my university administration in docx format, which looks slightly different in MSOffice 2010 and LibreOffice 5.1.3. In particular, there are three blocks of text on the bottom of the page specifying visitor addresses etc. The font used for the third column is wrong.
Example documents are attached. The document actually shows four different problems; I will open separate bugs for the other three.
Thanks for your consideration.

Any update here?
Thorsten Behrens committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
related tdf#100074: prepare group shapes text input via writerfilter
It will be available in 6.3.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Current state: what's in master now lays the ground work for getting Writer text frames to be used for in-group shapes. Switching that on now is rather easy, c.f.
, just that it currently only works for a _single_ child shape containing text.
