Description fabrizio 2017-09-19 09:09:00 UTC
Lots of DOCX documents coming from MSWord that have images in their header are not rendered correctly after saving them using LibreOffice and keeping the same DOCX format.

This happens often in documents that have multiple pages and different headers between the first page and the other ones.
As you can see in the example file that I've attached to this bug, if you try to save the file with LibreOffice, the header images from page 3 to 4 will disappear.

I'm using Libre x64 under Windows 8.1 but the problem is present under Ubuntu Linux, as well.

Steps to Reproduce:
Can't reproduce it from scratch. However you can use the example file I've attached.
1. Open the file with LibreOffice. Check that the header image is displayed in all the pages.
2. Save it again keeping the DOCX format
3. Reopen it (using MSWord or Libreoffice)
4. Check that from page 3 the header image is missing.

Actual Results:  
No header images from page 3

Expected Results:
I'm expecting that all the pages have the same header image that was displayed before saving the document.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Please note that sometimes the images from page 3 aren't displayed *even before* saving the document, while they're present if you open the document using MSWord.

The problem is at import time as the image in header is only displayed in first and second page, but not in the third and the forth. I guess this is the same issue as in bug 57155


Thanks for reporting this issue!

Xisco Faulí,
I can't see how this could possibly be a dupe. This opens the file correctly and is a file SAVE issue. The other is a file OPEN issue. Highly doubt they are the same.
