Not sure about this one. Reproduced and bugs of this type are "normal" severity.
But if DOC as saved as DOCX in MSO, it also opens wrong there. 
I'll confirm with Low priority.

Maybe a duplicate. 
Anyway better to mark and to retest if that one is ever fixed.

Is there a change that this gets fixed in the near future (can I help somewhere)? I want to start using LibreOffice but it's a problem for me if it fucks up old office documents that are perfectly viewable in Word itself.
Comment 5 Kees 2020-10-30 08:15:15 UTC
Or is there a way I can work around it somehow?
