Example document from Word with legacy form control checkboxes
Attached form has a lot of legacy OLE form control checkboxes in tables.
In Word this document fits on 3 pages, but in Writer it is 5.
This is because the legacy form controls are imported as a slightly larger square, causing table rows becoming a bit taller.
This adds up and two table rows are pushed to the next page after the first one, and an empty paragraph is pushed to the fourth page.
It would be nice if these old style controls would be somehow identical in size to the ones in Word.
Note: the square before "Kulcs visszaállítás" on the first page is actually smaller than all other squares, while in Word it is the same size.

Minimized version of the file from Word
This small 1x2 table shows the problem too.

Screenshot of the minimized document in Writer and Word
For some reason the box in the left cell has 12pt character size in Writer, but only 10pt in Word.
The box in the right cell has 10pt character size in both.
Also if the cell contents are copy-pasted into the document body both boxes get 12pt character size in Word and Writer too.
Adding to docx+table meta, this problem might have to do something with tables.
