File showing the problem

The attached file, when opened with 

Version: (x64)
Build ID: d54a8868f08a7b39642414cf2c8ef2f228f780cf
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.1; UI Render: default;

displays "Courier New" in the font drop-down box, but a single click on the badly displayed fixed format layout will change that into the actually used font, "Liberation Sans".

The problem seems to be that Writer cannot handle an RTF document that does not contain "\pard\plain", whereas Word 2002 (a "freebie" with my PC) has absolutely no trouble opening the attached.

The first row has 'Courier new' up to the space before 'Year' but the rest of the document has 'Calibri' font.

Comment 3 robert 2016-12-04 18:18:52 UTC
You're right about the first line, and the font drop-down tells me that the rest is "Liberation Serif".

Must still have been sleeping...

From the comments I understand there is no bug, so closing as such.
Comment 5 robert 2016-12-10 19:34:32 UTC
Did you actually look at the file?

> Did you actually look at the file?

Yes, I looked at the file.

So are you wanting to turn this report now to something else than in your description? If yes, please attach a screenshot or PDF of how the RTF is supposed to look like, when rendered correctly.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.

Table as it should be displayed

And the fact that the ignored font, "Courier New" is a fixed pitch font didn't ring any bells?

Confirmed it looks like that in MSO 2013. Confirmed that it is rendered incorrectly in LibO (with Courier New available).

For me, the replacement font is Liberation Serif, so now we have three different experiences (L. Sans, Calibri).

RTF import filter does not pick up the Courier New font--and Default style is assigned to all paragraphs.

Once opened into LO, modifying Default paragraph style to use Courier New restores tabular format of the file.
