Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2020-08-12 10:51:44 UTC
Created attachment 164198 [details]
Example file from Writer

Attached odt document (originally saved from attachment #164180 [details]) contains an OLE object with Spacing values set.
When saved to DOCX format these are not retained.

Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open attached file and save it as DOCX
    2. Open the saved file in Word

Actual results:
The OLE objects spacing values appear as 0 top/bottom and 0.32 cm left/right, which are the Word-defaults. This makes the text layout a bit tighter than originally, potentially changing page layout in the process.

Expected results:
Spacing values are exported correctly.
