Description Justin L 2017-01-17 06:44:54 UTC
When opening a document that was set to restart footnote numbering on each page, if the document is saved as a DOC then it reverts to continuous numbering *in MSWord only*. (LibreOffice DOES import with per-page numbering).

According to Linux bibisect43all, this has been true since at least LO3.5.

This is a companion to DOCX bug 92470.  Use that bug's ODT attachment 116974 [details] which has per-page renumbering.  When saving it as a .doc format, MSWord will still consider it to be "continuous" numbering.
