Sample DOC

Attaching a very simple sample DOC created in Word (single word + comment).
Delete comment in Writer, save DOC, open it in Word.

=> Text is not shown in Word, double-clicking in the area where it's supposed to be makes it appear, but it disappears again after clicking away, and it's very difficult to edit.

Note that I only encountered this bug using this small sample, and only with DOC files.

Observed with 5.4beta2 & 4.0.0.3 / Windows 7.

Sample DOC (new)

Turns out it's got nothing to do with comments.
See the new sample, a doc that contains three one-line paragraphs. Opening it in Word after a roundtrip in Writer doesn't show the last paragraph. Double-clicking where it should be displays it, but it disappears again after clicking away.

I'm using Word 2013 for testing.
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-06-25 22:21:42 UTC
If the third paragraph is a couple of lines long, it's displayed fine in Word after roundtrip.

Confirmed doesnt happen in Word 2003, 2007, and 2010 but does in 2013, but if saved in Word 2013, it will reappear. Also in 2013, the document has a very weird behaviour as when you move the cursor with the down arrow key, it seems like the cursor can go down forever. Was able to make the line appear by double-clicking to the right of the line, wherein a tab stop was added to the line, though the weird endless down arrow key behaviour still persisted.

word online preview

So i checked Word Online and noticed that the preview that it generated looked weird, so i was able to get a large version of the preview which is attached, but when i open the document for editing, it looks fine.

Marco confirmed it with Word 2016.

Another sample (ODT, save as DOC in Writer and open in Word)

Here's another sample created entirely in Writer: a single input field.
When saved as DOC and opened in Word, the document appears empty. However, if it's saved in Word without any changes and reloaded, the field appears.
