Description Ralph Corderoy 2019-02-12 12:48:38 UTC
Viewing an MS Word DOC file in LibreOffice numbers items differently to Word, rendering references incorrect.

Using (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.

Actual Results:
1.1 is called 2, 3 is called 4, ...

Expected Results:
Same as provided PDF.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

in previous versions, it was even worse... Probably it's already reported...
