Description Maurizio 2019-10-01 20:20:04 UTC
When opening in Writer a Word document (extension .docx) the sub-chapters numbering gets wrong. Instead of starting according to the chapter (e.g. 3.1, 3.2, 3.3) the numbering follows the chapter 1 "order"; chapter 3 may therefore contain subchapter 1.6 instead of its subchapter 1 etc.

Steps to Reproduce:
N.A. It happens with docs written by a third party

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Sometimes

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
it happens with docs from external parties. It does not happen opening the same document with NeoOffice (That is based on the same Libre Office origin) or with Polaris Office
