I am trying to use a different footer on page 5 of my document. When I make a section break on page 4 in .docx i am able to make a different footer on page 5 because it is a different section.
When i open that .docx in LibreOffice the section break is not there and the footer on page 5 is the same as the footer on page 4.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make section break in .docx
2. save file
3. Open with LibreOffice
No break in LibreOffice
Break in LibreOffice
User Profile Reset: Yes
Is .docx created in MSO or LO?
Please attach the file.

file has section break on page 3
The attached file was created in MSO
If you open the attached file using Microsoft word, you will see that at the end of the third page I made a continuous section break in the .docx file.
This allows the header and footer on page 4 and for the remaining pages to be a different header and footer.
If you open this file using LibreOffice you will see that it does not recognize the section break and that all headers and footer on the document are the same.
Confirmed with 6.3+. No repro with LO 5.2.0. Looks like regression from 5.2.2.

You missed actually CC'ing me - I just stumbled across this.
LibreOffice has no support for continuous sections at all. This will never work unless the internals of LibreOffice are re-written.
If you want to make a compatible document, you need to do a page-break instead of a continuous break.
