Document with multiple frames is scrambled when saved as .doc or .docx, works fine if kept as .odt - tested with 184.108.40.206
Save as .doc or .docx
The frames are significantly displaced
Text in one of the frames loses a newline
The document reopens with the frames in their original positions and formatting unchanged
Bugs 55946, 61494 and 67318 seem to be related, but not quite the same.
This bug makes interworking with colleagues with MS Word extremely problematical.
Suspect that the bug is the same in other OS's, but not tested.

NOTE: As in this picture can be seen, on export, the anchors move to right and that is the reason why the frames misplaced. Behind this, the problem is that, in Writer there are four anchors: as char, at char, at paragraph, and at page. In OOXML (docx) there are the as char and at char and at page options are available. If the anchor type is at paragraph ( like in this situation ) the program will convert it to as char type (on export). In spite of in the user interface it shows as paragraph, the anchor will be on the character. That's why the whole stuff moves to right horizontally (because there is no character on the left side of the image due to wrap settings).

These are actually shape objects, not frames. Changing meta bug.

The example file and its docx-version after manually fixing up its layout
After changing the horizontal positioning of the top right shapes from "Paragraph area" to "Left paragraph border" (and adjusting the amount back to its original 11 cm value - which is not read correctly back in this screenshot :() the layout seems to get fixed.
See bug #138782 about this.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 138782 ***
This was marked fixed for DOCX.
DOC has an issue of "Address Block" anchored to paragraph being changed to character, so it's position is changed.
But there are so many bugs on that, I will not report another one.
