I saved a document of 18 pages and when I tried accessing it the next day, the software had misplaced a few lines out of the borders.
I can still remove the text with 'backspace' and 'delete' and even copy it to other document if I copy the whole paragraph, but I cant edit the line in the current document itself.
Microsoft word can open it properly but libre writer misplaces few lines.
I saved it in .docx format.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Highlight the whole paragraph
2.Copy it another file and the line will be alright
3.delete the problematic line in original document and replace it with the proper one from the new document
it becomes fine after you replace the line
should have saved properly in the first place so i didnt have to replace all the milaligned lines
Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

the file containing the bug
here is the file with the bug report, kindly check what's wrong with it and find some ways to reproduce the result
It is a problem with tabs. If you look at the ruler, there are no tab stops. If you copy the text, open a new document, there are tab stops by default and so everything is O. K. with the text.
So the question is: Why the tab stop do get lost? But I can't answer this question on the basis of the document. Do you have any explanation about it, any ideas what happened before?

That's the normal setting if you open an empty document. What is unnormal, that there are no tab stops in the ruler by default (compare your document with an empty new document)
If I may ask, how would we all know if the tab stops are there or not? What is the indication if they are there or not there? What does it look like.

If we don't know the steps that caused the problem, there is no possibility to fix it (if it is a real bug). Also, the original file should be available as ODT, so we have a clear reproduction case.
