Description Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2016-10-14 04:30:16 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #90534 +++

The court requires documents to have two vertical lines on the left margin and 1 vertical line on the right margin. (Word puts these in the header.)

Attachment 114701 [details] is a DOCX document that includes said vertical lines as expected by the courts.

Here's how it looks in Mac Word 2011:  attachment 114709 [details]
Here's how it looks in a recent build of 5.3 alpha0: attachment 127334 [details]

In LibreOffice, the right vertical line is missing on all pages and the left vertical lines are missing on the 2nd page. On the 1st page, the left vertical lines are visible, but are significantly further to the right, intruding into the main body of text.
Comment 1 Cor Nouws 2016-10-14 07:23:32 UTC
It looks as if this vertical line is created by some table/frame combination, that is not related to the other (text)content of the document.

So yes, this docx file opens broken, different. But no, it is not related to the format required by the court - one could get the needed result in another way too.

Even more broken in

wrt severity: Just a 'normal' formatting issue

Dear Robinson Tryon (qubit),

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
