Hi Soldatov,

Thanks for posting the issue.

I confirm the problem in a recent daily version ( LibreOffice is trying for ~5 minutes now; I quit the application.
Comment 2 Cor Nouws 2016-09-08 15:05:35 UTC
LibreOffice 'opens' the file after some time, showing some zillion frames..
By the way, 'my' Word2010 in a win7 VM is now working for 7 minutes and has already done 85% of the process of opening the file.
An interesting profiling case, but not a regular use case I guess..?

The basis of my work is the monitoring of various documents . Such situations are not uncommon . I mean, when to wait for the opening of the document should be more than 10 minutes . As a tool , I use LibreOffice. Where it does not open the document using MS Office. In this situation, I decided to describe the problem in our bugtracker .

This file opened by Word 2010 correctly.

Not for me and, as I see, Cor. This is the slowest file I ever opened in MSO and saving there as 2010 docx version froze my computer. 
This is likely 2007 docx. It's 275 page table created with text-boxes (!), so not correct file at all. 

I'd be glad to set this one as "invalid" but I'll just lower the importance and set bact to Needinfo until a response on what's missing in the report: 
- how was this created at all? I guess not MSO but some program generation, which and how?
