Description nokidding 2017-12-10 18:59:11 UTC
When converting files into doc or docx and even after I have re-adjusted them all on my end in LO, the footnotes behave very oddly: usually alighting the first line towards the centre of the page (see screenshot 1 https://imgur.com/a/PAtKA) ... this gets worse as the editing process continues (see screenshot 2 https://imgur.com/a/kZ4ic)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.converting files into doc or docx with footnotes
2. re-open in either MO or LO

Actual Results:  
footnote advances of a tab (at each time of opening)

Expected Results:
footnote should not increase by a tab (with links this becomes really evident and annoying)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
the main text in LO and in MO is set to have a first line indent to +1 to distinguish paragraphs. The footnotes seem to reproduce that indent although the style is not set for that and I have even changed the "Inherit from" style, under the "Organiser" tab, for "Paragraph Style: Footnote Text". The tab increases at each opening (at least 2-3 times)

Thanks for reporting the issue.
It seems like a duplicate of bug 113553

This one is reproducible with Version: (x64)
Build ID: 92a7159f7e4af62137622921e809f8546db437e5
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: default; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); Calc: group

and *not* reproducible with Version: (x64)
Build ID: f82d347ccc0be322489bf7da61d7e4ad13fe2ff3
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.19; UI Render: default; Layout Engine: new; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); Calc: group

So this one is a regression (however similar could be other problems in the past). Didn't try the bug 113553, possibly results would be similar.

But anyway: the bug (this, or the one which this one is duplicate of) needs bibisection.
