Comment 4 Durgapriyanka 2019-02-12 15:54:15 UTC
Thank you for reporting the bug.I cannot reproduce the bug. The alignment stays even after saving in XLSX format.
Comment 5 Timur 2019-02-12 16:56:47 UTC
Reproduced 6.3+ in Windows so I'll confirm. Not clear why  Durgapriyanka couldn't reproduce.
Looks from LO 3.3 so implementation error. Works OK for XLS.
Comment 6 Timur 2019-02-18 10:59:33 UTC
Filesave to XLSX was available only from LO 3.3 which is not the same as "inherited from OO 3.3".
