Sample DOCX

The attached DOCX was created in Word, and contains a footer with a table and two lines of text.
In Writer, the last line of text doesn't fit on page.

Observed using LO 6.2 daily build (2018-09-22, 8b1501d80dc9d3f42c351c6e026fa737e116cae5), / Windows 7.
In 3.5.0 the table isn't imported in the footer.

I confirm it with

I think it's perhaps a problem with Autofit height:
1. Open format footer
2. disable Autofit height and change height to 1,2 cm => Apply
3. Enable Autofit height => Apply

Steps to reproduce from scratch:

1. Create a new text document in Writer.
2. Add a footer.
3. Insert a 2-row table into the footer.
4. Below the footer, add 2 lines of text (like "test<ENTER>test")
5. Format footer to have spacing 0, no dynamic spacing, height 1 mm, and use AutoFit Height.

=> the last line hides (doesn't fit into the footer).

The both *spacing* settings are not really relevant here, and mentioned just to have stable setup. The problem is also reproducible with non-0 dynamic spacing, as seen in the original bugdoc.

Interesting that increasing footer height up to 9 mm keeeps the problem; setting it to 10 mm makes the problem disappear.

Note that the problem is not specific to file format; nor to fonts.
