Description Mike Kaganski 2017-09-12 19:49:41 UTC
Created attachment 136209 [details]
Table overlaps table

In the attachment, the bottom half of the first page contains a table in a floating frame. The frame's wrap mode is "Page" (or, as seen in the Properties dialog, "Parallel"). This is described in help (https://help.libreoffice.org/index.php?title=Writer/Wrap) as "Wraps text on all four sides of the border frame of the object". But the text and table that go below the table's anchor point overlap the frame, so the layout is broken.

The problem is not format-specific. First encountered in a DOC file, then sanitized and saved into ODT.

Expected layout

This is produced by setting the wrap mode of the frame to "No wrap".

The problem is tested with Version: (x64)

Attachment 135594 [details] shows "Another DOC example for table overlap" as PDF from MSO.
Attachment 135595 [details] is "Another DOC example for table overlap" with frame wrap set to None in MSO and it opens fine.

Another DOC example for table overlap - removed multipart header

The attachment is the fixed copy of attachment 136227 [details], but without leading textual "multipart/mixed" heading that prevents opening it (at least on my system), so it's just a usual DOC now.

Yes, it's definitely the same problem.
Comment 7 Mike Kaganski 2017-11-29 21:00:22 UTC
Steps to reproduce from scratch:

1. In a blank document, press Enter (now you have two empty paragraphs).
2. Put cursor to second paragraph, and add a table (say, 2x2). Put some text to all cells of the table.
3. Put cursor to the first paragraph, and draw a rectangle a little narrower than text area, and with height greater than the table (using Draw Functions panel); set its anchor type To Paragraph or To Character (place the anchor on first paragraph). If required, make its area hatched (to see through).

The rectangle will overlap the table with all the text in it, while it is expected that the table should either move below the rectangle as a whole (as is when the wrapping mode is Optimal), or change its cells' height to at least move its text from below the rectangle (as when anchor type is set To Page).
