(I am new to LibreOffice, but I like it. Sorry if I do not use the correct terms. I am also new to this Bugzilla, and I was not able to find, whether the bug was reported earlier. Sorry if it was.)
The RTF document (I can send a small example) was originally created in MS Word. The heading part and part of the content was created with frames/tables (?) around the text.
I believe it worked fine with LibreOffice Writer 6.3.4. After switching to 6.4.1, the texts in the document that were framed are not shown -- just empty rectangles.
A RTF browser (MS Windows, Total Commander, F3 - Lister) shows the content is there.
When experimenting with the file, right-mouse button click (context menu) + Wrap > In Background causes the text appear. (The Wrap Through is set by default.)
I do not know the internals, but the rectangles are as if white-colour filled instead of transparent.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the specific RTF document. (Text in the frame is not visible.)
2. Mouse right click -- Wrap -- In Background -- this makes it visible.
3. Save (without changing the format) and open again -- not visible again.
Text invisible (obscured by the white area of the frame).
User Profile Reset: No
I do not know how to send the file sample.

The sample file that shows the problem.
To add: This is not related to tables. It is related to Frames.
I believe it worked differently in 6.3.4, but I am not sure actually (working on more computers).

I believe the issue with empty frames hiding text is described in Bug 71920. (But interestingly, it's thought to be inherited from OpenOffice in that bug...)
I can confirm that the issue with not saving the "Background wrap" setting is specific to RTF, as converting to ODT keeps the setting when reopened.
