Description Alexey 2016-10-28 12:51:59 UTC
The DOCX file contains a header, which contains page-number with Letters style (A B C).
In MS 2007, it is shown correctly with letter A.
in LO it is shown as 1 (Digits style).

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open file test.docx
2.Observer header with page numbering

Actual Results:  
"1" instead of "A" is shown in header

Expected Results:
"A" is shown in header

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Test file with page number changed to A

Repro OO and 6.4+.
Header is not relevant, same happens in document body.
But this is a mess. 

Page numbers *is* digits 1,2.. also in MSO. This is also a field with page A, B...
If we change page numbers format to A, B... in MSO, LO opens fine.
Unless we have a scenario where this can normally happen for a user, this is WorksForMe and I close.
