The letter template layout changes when imported as .docx and exported as .odf.
After reopening the .odf file, the paragraph with the date is too low.
The issue can be seen as a regression introduced by my commit
but it can be "fixed" by moving the right textbox a little and hit "undo". So there is an inconsistency between offline and online layout formatting.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the docx file
2. save as odf
3. close Writer
4. open odf file
Date is too low below the textbox and can be pulled back by moving the box and hitting "undo"
Date is just below the textbox

I can't reproduce it with
Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+ (x64)

Word has the option "Allow overlap", which is off for the text boxes. Therefore the boxes are effectively not on the position, which its settings say. LibreOffice does not have such options, but shapes can always overlap. So the position has to be recalculated on import to fake the position from Word.
Currently the original position from Word is simply copied.
I see the error in Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ (x64)

The behaviour is reproduced with the following file, where the second heading is in the middle because of the image while it should be aligned to the left.

Hi, thanks for the feedback and other test files!
I will try to figure out why my commit introduces this regression.

I missed your comment.
The issue got fixed by https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=59f5f666a5085ae58a8dd164636a6bea47e6bddc
Since your commit https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=59f5f666a5085ae58a8dd164636a6bea47e6bddc fixed attachment #1, I thought you could be interested in attachment #6...
