Bug 103573 fixed the horizontal import of docx shapes with alignment relative to 'Left Margin' or 'Right Margin'. The import of shapes with vertical alignment relative to 'Top Margin' and "Bottom Margin' are still unhanded.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Word insert image, texbox, or shape.
2. Set vertical alignment relative to 'Top Margin' or 'Bottom Margin'
3. Save and Open in Writer
'Bottom Margin' objects are placed on the top.
Same results as Word

The MS-DOC importer maps Word's "Top Margin" to "Entire Page". Would that work here?

I don't know how DOC import exactly works, but that's true we don't have similar options as MS Word's "Top Margin" and "Bottom Margin" alignment, so a workaround can be an option. It seems DOC import handle this on the way setting alignment to "Entire Page" and somehow convert position values. If this works good enough,then it can be a good idea to implement it in DOCX import too.

Objects set with vertical alignment relative to 'Top Margin' or 'Bottom Margin' are misplaced on the page in the docx. MS-DOC file works as expected.
Miklos, any thoughts here?
The bug #133045 is similar, however this example doc contains VML, while that one contains DML shape - this might make a bit of difference, so not closing yet.
Tibor Nagy committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#103611 sw: fix vertical alignment to page bottom margin
It will be available in 7.1.0.
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.
@Tibor: I've modified this bug only for the "bottom margin" case, so you can close it. We must file a new bug for the "top margin", where we will be able to do more investigation, according to the missing top page border RelOrientation. Likely we will need a PAGE_PRINT_AREA_TOP_AREA RelOrientation (or PAGE_TOP, similar to the existing PAGE_LEFT and PAGE_RIGHT).
