replicatable formatted file (resume) - job title area

This is my first bugzilla report. I do not know if this is related to BugID 46938, or not. I selected Severity: Major, because working with a law firm, being able to save as different formats is very important. I did not catch this initially as I created .ODT files and later ended up with PDF and DOCX. The order may have been mixed up. It took a while to notice. 

Finally I discovered the issue and was able to replicate it. I have a resume example with at least two right-aligned tab markers on the ruler. Notice the Job title is right up agains the dates employed. On the same line, if I remove the 2nd to the last marker (or the inner right-aligned) tab marker from the ruler, the job title jumps to the far right side of the page, as it should. If I save the file as .ODT, close and re-open, then the erased right-aligned marker remains deleted. 

If however after removing the inner right-aligned marker, I were to "Save_AS" and change the format to DOCX, close and re-open the file, then the erased inner right-aligned markeer is still there and the job title has not jumped to be right-aligned at the right side margin as one would hope.

I was using ( i have not tested on any other version).
