original ODT


First I tried to open the full ODT with Word 365 but the cover page text was all messed up.

Then, I exported from ODT to DOCX and reopened the DOCX in LO and the text appeared a line or two above the original.

I confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 90f8dcf33c87b3705e78202e3df5142b201bd805
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group threaded

I also noticed, that images in odt-file are anchored to paragraph, while images in docx are anchored to character, but I don't now if this has an influence to the position of the text.

I think it has to do with the wrap mode.
