Description Michelle 2020-01-02 05:59:46 UTC
Tables in a docx file saved from writer will display slightly to the left, outside of the text boundary, when opened in ms word 2016 / 2019, compared to writer (see comparison image).

In ms word, clicking "File -> Info -> Convert" will resolve the difference.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new file in writer, type some text and insert a table, type some text into the table, save as docx.
2. Compare file in writer and ms word.

Actual Results:
In word the text inside and outside of the table will be aligned evenly and the table will be outside the text boundary. in writer the text will not be even and the table will be inside the text boundary.

Expected Results:
Tables should be rendered the same in writer and word.

Reproducible: Always

tdf#106742: OOXML import/export: treat "tblInd" properly

Fixed in 6.3.6 and 6.4.2

    related: tdf#106742 sw: DOCX import/export: fix default of table indent
    There's a compatibilityMode in word/settings.xml in DOCX files:
    If a document doesn't contain compatibilityMode, then the default
    is 12, but the code for table indent import/export assumed that the
    default is 15, so loading an ODF document and exporting as DOCX results
    in wrong table indent when loaded in Word.
