Description Cor Nouws 2016-07-04 13:09:36 UTC
The fix of bug 90697 (dupl bug 100513) makes another problem visible: footnotes after the first footnote are pushed to the bottom of the second page. The reference still is on the correct position in the text.

This obviously is related to the following problems:

 - Bug 98287 - Mixing footnotes between sections leads to unwanted page break after the first footnote and pushes the second footnote to the next page (edit) 

 - Bug 54465 - FORMATTING: Inserting footnote in section (with columns), make that sections size grow to the full page

This is the test file (  http://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=125792 ) from issue 100513.

I'll add a PDF showing part of that file in a daily from June 28, July 4 and a PDF from Word.

Minimized example file

This Word 2019 minimized file contains no section break, but the footnotes are laid out differently in Writer regardless.

There is a textbox in the footer and upon opening this file in Writer there is only one footnote laid out on the first page.

However selecting the textbox in Writer, pressing Del, then choosing Tools - Update - Page Formatting moves the footnotes 2-3 to the bottom of the first page, just like in Word.

Dear Cor Nouws,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
