Description Patrick Jaap 2017-11-20 09:41:24 UTC
Sample file contains a table (positioned a few centimeters below the first paragraph). Opening it in LO Writer puts it in the first paragraph, regardless of the stored positioning.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open sample file

Actual Results:  
table is placed in the first paragraph

Expected Results:
table is placed a few centimeters below

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
It looks like a missing feature, since tables have no position attributes in LO Writer.

Can you check, if it is related to bug 77760?
Comment 3 Patrick Jaap 2017-11-20 13:59:37 UTC
Yes, bug 77760 is the same issue. LO Writer has no support for absolute table positions, it always moves with the text. So, we need to implement this feature, i guess.
