DOCX compared MSO LO
This is a follow-up of bug 77417.
Open 4-pages sample DOCX from MSO attachment 157397 [details] and see it's 6 pages in LO 7.1+.
As noted by NISZ (for the first table FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS):
There is a TAB character after the values that is not rendered by Word but is rendered by Writer.
Under 2012 column the After Text indent is 0.45 cm in Writer, but 0.44 cm in Word. Manually adjusting this somehow fixes the line break problem.
I confirm it with
Version: 18.104.22.168.beta1 (x64)
Build ID: 94f789cbb33335b4a511c319542c7bdc31ff3b3c
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
This works in Word similar to the tabs over margin thing: if there are extra tabs defined (on the ruler, not autotabs) at the end of the cell, Word ignores them, just like with normal text body lines and tabs that would go over the right margin.
We have a compatibility option for this latter situation, which might serve as inspiration handling this one.
Note: looks like in bug #142404 that the behavior of the page level tabs changed in Word 15, but this example is also from that and does not show a behavior change in Word.
