Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2019-04-17 09:20:38 UTC
Description:
A new, empty paragraph appears after the (originally) last paragraph in the footer of this document when opened in LibreOffice Writer. The other issue with this document (Footer is positioned differently in Writer compared to Word) is dealt with in a different bugreport.

Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Open the attached RTF file (RTF-Footer_issues.rtf) in LibreOffice Writer and Microsoft Word.
    2. Compare the two side by side.

Actual Results:
There is an empty paragraph at the end of the footer in LibreOffice Writer which doesn't appear in Microsoft Word.

Expected Results:
There shouldn't be an empty paragraph at the end of the footer.


Reproducible: Always

Comment 5 Gabor Kelemen 2019-05-23 12:46:36 UTC
The problem is that the main content of this footer is inside a frame in Word, that is placed in the footer. The footer still has its empty default paragraph, and the frame is anchored to that. 
This frame is positioned such way that the last paragraph is exactly at the bottom border of the paper.

In Writer the frame is not present in the Navigator as a separate entity.
Its content is folded into the footer main text, before the default empty paragraph, which appears after the page number.

Also the first paragraph has an upper border that is lost, and some 6pt spacing after instead of 0 - these should go as a separate bug (or two).

This seems like an old regression from 3.5 to 3.6
Comment 7 Aron Budea 2019-05-23 16:47:19 UTC
It's a regression introduced in the following range, bibisected using repo bibisect-43all:
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=5f06a2b734941a79983ecf8476b412bf6ce5e9e8..d453788ac0476cc02b929b0907718ca771d6d956

Miklos has a couple of RTF-specific commits in that range.
Comment 8 Miklos Vajna 2019-05-24 07:20:21 UTC
Thanks for the bibisect. Sadly I don't see any commit in that range which is obviously connected to footers. (Reviewed my commits and rtf commits.)
