1. Load Bugdoc in Writer
2. Save as docx
3. Open docx in Word

The chart on the second page is misplaced (on the first page).

Then go to Word "File" menu, click the "Convert" button in the "Compatibility mode" section.
After that, the document is displayed correctly (chart is on second page where it should be).

The earlier identified 6.4 commit probably isn't very helpful - it was non-anchored placement to anchored placement fixes.

positioning was very poor earlier in 7.0 master, but mostly good as of

    tdf#128207: DOCX import: fix chart positioning

    Embedded graphic objects had got 0 values for vertical and horizontal
    positioning before, resulting overlapping, hidden charts,
    but now they are positioned according to the values in the document.

The document never looks good in Word 2010. So that means that we have an import bug - because it looks fine in LO now, even though LO imports in 2010 mode. Likely no one cares too much about a 2010 import bug though...

It does seem to be JUST related to the compatibilityMode=15. I changed all of the other compatSettings, and that didn't affect the layout. compatibilityMode=14 is not enough to fix it either.
Comment 6 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2020-03-20 06:08:17 UTC
This works now correctly after setting the docx compatiblityMode to 15 (bug 131304).
