Description Jackson Sul 2017-08-27 00:35:52 UTC
Inserting comments (ctrl+alt+c) to leave notes works just fine with .odt files, but comments in the footnotes of .doc and .docx formatted files are not saved. Comments in the main body of text are properly saved.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a .doc or .docx with footnotes.
2. Insert a comment in the footnote.
3. Save the file.

Actual Results:  
When the file is reopened, the comment is gone.

Expected Results:
When the file is reopened, the comment should have been saved and should be visible.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

@ Aibara: I think you should confirm bug 86188 with your actual version of LO and close this bug as a duplicate.
