Description clement 2019-11-12 06:41:25 UTC
I have some large word documents created in MS Word with many full resolution pictures and text.  When I import them, pictures and text are moved to wrong locations.  The early pages are OK, but later pages may have text moved to the next page or a picture moved down and split between 2 pages.  I have also seen a picture partially duplicated onto another page.

Clement, thank you or sending me link to file in private. I could see some pictures in wrong location (for example on page 71). But we need a document in bugzilla, so that a developer can have a look at it.

Please have also a look at bugs in meta bug 104468. Perhaps a bug is similar to yours.

Hi Clement,
Could you please indicate in which pages the problem is happening? I assume the problem is in the .docx file...
If possible, please attach a couple of screenshots showing the problem too
