Description Chon 2018-07-05 13:44:00 UTC
When I'd used an endnotes, above the endnotes appears large indent. After changing all possible settings I've identified that this indent appears just if in the page style endnote settings you use two or more columns. If I import the document in .docx and open it with Word the text in endnote page displayed normal. Moreover if I change from two to one column and click Appear or Ok it changes immediately, but it doesn’t work on the contrary instead of this column settings completely stop working.

The details with images right here:

Steps to Reproduce:
This indents appears on each single page where endnotes were presented, but it is normally presented on the pages with the main text.


The main problem is that on the page where Endnotes were presented as two columns, appears some mysterious indent. Look at the image below.


When I change the number of columns on the current page from two to one - this had fixed the indent and looked properly. Image below.


Then, if I try to come back to two column style it dosen't work yet. See image below.


All this manipulations I've made in the .odt file. Instead of this when I import this file (without any described above manipulations, when the file include two columns setting and huge indent) in the .docx and open it with the Word - the artifact disappears. See image below.

Dear Chon,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

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.

If you have time, please do the following:

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 the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

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
