Comment 1 Telesto 2020-09-15 16:00:32 UTC
Any interest in the Table in footnotes topic? Don't think so, but can always ask ;-). LibreOffice does read those from DOCX (not to nice in rendering but working; I'm seeing it as a proof of concept). DOC has not support (table gone; content present). LibreOffice itself can't insert Table into footnote, probably because it never got implemented/ of finished.

Saving a DOC/X RTF with table in footnote to ODT simply trashes the whole content :-). Or doesn't ODT not support table in footnote?

And fiddling around with table in footnote is of course crashing (bug 136778).

In DOCX bug 132611 I noted that the layout code sw flowfrm.cxx contains the comment
    SAL_WARN("sw.core", "Tables in footnotes are not truly supported");

Until LO properly handles laying out tables and such here, there is no point in doing anything about importing or exporting them.

I asked you a few times not to open so many bugs without search.
