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:
attachment 143211 [details]
attachment 143212 [details]
LibreOffice PDF Export
attachment 143213 [details]
MS Office PDF Print
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached document in LibreOffice and MS Office
2. Compare the points listed in the description
margins are not preserved
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.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

attachment 154230 [details] is simplified DOCX.
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.
