Description Roeland 2018-07-01 17:01:05 UTC
This is the second report connected to bug 118460, which will be split up in several issues in order to focus on the different problems.

In this case Margins are not respected at all - in particular at the bottom, in MS Office there is no overlap into the footer (and beyond) while in LibreOffice text from the body overlaps footer/margin area substantially

I tried to search for similar reports, but it is very difficult to know if another bug report has the same underlying cause.

Documents to illustrate the problem:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Compare the points listed in the description

Actual Results:
See description

Expected Results:
margins are not preserved

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

warning: this is a really goofy document. I can't even figure out how it was built in Word.

negative page margins are probably the problem here.

Page area is different in MSO and LO for DOCX with negative top and bottom margins.
It's like MSO doesn't respect negative margins and LO does.
