Viewing an MS Word DOC file in LibreOffice numbers items differently to Word, rendering references incorrect.
Using https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/756506/model-articles-of-association-limited-by-guarantee-small-membership.doc (attached) the fourth page looks different. A PDF from Word has been attached. Word numbers a paragraph 1.1, but LO calls it 2. That knocks subsequent numbers out. Word's item 3.2 refers to 3.3, etc., but in LO that's 4.2 still referring to, the now incorrect, 3.3.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open DOC in LO.
1.1 is called 2, 3 is called 4, ...
Same as provided PDF.

in previous versions, it was even worse... Probably it's already reported...
Dear Ralph Corderoy,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Still present in 7.0.4.

I attach the document from comment 0.
Just to note that I had already attached the document from comment 0 in comment 1 and the document added just now in comment 6 is different in some way as the file size has changed for starters.
*** Bug 130670 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Justin Luth committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#123405 doc import: inherit from all Outline styles
It will be available in 7.3.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at

information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
comment 2: model-articles-of-association-limited-by-guarantee-small-membership.doc: good. [Indenting of sublevels is still incorrect.]
comment 9: 129221 BulletListsNotResettingAtHeaders MSO.doc: not yet fixed. Marked as NEW instead of duplicate since it has unique issues.
