I have been trying to adjust a footer on my document, which normally appears as "Footer (Default Style)" on pages 1, 2 & 3.
However, when I scroll further down, pages 4, 5 etc. all have different footers, titled "Footer (Converted 1)", "Footer (Converted 2)", etc. changing on each page incrementally.
I have tried to setup the footer on a blank new document and I have noticed that this happens again.
As a note, I have not created any different footer style, nor is there any (Converted) style on the style properties. Also, all the settings of the footer are the same (appear on all pages) and every time I delete the different footers, they still maintain their "unseen" style (Converted), therefore I cannot revert them back to original style.
Thank you for reporting the bug.
Unfortunately without clear steps to reproduce it, we cannot track down the origin of the problem.
Please provide a clearer set of step-by-step instructions on how to reproduce the problem.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the steps are provided
I totally understand. Here are the exact steps I did:
1. I loaded a legal document saved in DOCX format of MS-Office 20013 that I needed to process - with all relevant fonts installed, so there was nothing missing
2. I went down to the footer, which had some "normal page" text boxes "assigned" to the footer (and could not be processed or resized aside from the ruler
3. I deleted the footer (started on page one), which "revealed" the windows of the text boxes (I was able to move them at that point, but I deleted them nonetheless)
4. I clicked on the bottom of the page and pressed the "Footer (Default Style) +" button that appeared.
5. I created a table that I wanted for my footer, inserted the information and formatted it appropriately.
6. After finishing, I scrolled down to the 6-page-total document and noticed that in pages 4, 5 and 6 the footer was missing
7. I clicked at the footer and I saw that the button on the right side said "Footer (Converted 1)
8. I scrolled further down and each page henceforth had an incremental number of a "Converted Footer"
9. As the pages increased to 7, I ended up with a total of the Default Footer appearing on the first three pages and from there on, four increments of Converted Footers
10. After looking around for a bit, I went to the "Styles and Formatting" right tab and into the Custom Styles, which included only the table and a list style
11. I clicked on the "Pages Styles" on the top small icon of the "Styles and Formatting" tab and all the "Converted" Footers appeared
NOTE: All the Footers appear as Default when first importing the docx file. Also, there are no graphics involved, just text.
I hope this helps.

Now we just need the document, unless you have minimal steps to make the problem appear purely in LibreOffice.
Please attach a sample document, as this makes it easier for us to verify the bug.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested document is provided.
