Description Emiliano 2018-06-23 08:50:25 UTC
This happens everytime I open the document: a tabulation is added, and it has to be removed by hand, or it will be saved and other tabulations at the next opening of the file will follow. With the .odt format it works fine, but problems begin as soon as you save it as .docx

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a .docx document with Libreoffice

Actual Results:
A tabulation is added between the number and the text of every footnote 

Expected Results:
There would have been no tabulation

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
I have checked the footnote.xml file and noticed that actually a tabulation is added after opening the .docx document:

<w:rStyle w:val="Caratterinotaapidipagina"/>
<w:rStyle w:val="Caratterinotaapidipagina"/>
<w:rStyle w:val="Caratterinotaapidipagina"/>
<w:tab/> #HERE
<w:t xml:space="preserve"> </w:t>
<w:rFonts w:cs="Times New Roman" w:ascii="Times New Roman" w:hAnsi="Times New Roman"/>
<w:lang w:val="en-US"/>
<w:t xml:space="preserve">
I am grateful...

Please attach an example .odt that we can save as .docx to immediately see the effect.

Please attach an example document.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.

This has probably been fixed in LO 6.1. See bug 106062
