Some text boxes on Microsoft word files are formatted incorrectly due to the Wrap setting on them (default seems to be Page Wrap). This is causing the text boxes to have incorrect formatting and is moving them over other object/text on the document.
I'm able to manually fix this issue by selecting the text boxes and changing the wrapping style to "Optimal Page Wrap", but applying this indiscriminately to the whole document causes most pages to go blank and sometimes crashes LibreOffice.
At a large scale, we won't be able to tell which text boxes actually need this new wrapping style, and which ones it would format even worse. Libre should be able to handle the correct wrapping style from the word document.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open included file with LibreOffice. Or Copy/Paste text boxes included on original file (docx) above block of text. Not exactly sure how the text boxes were made on this file, but they seem to be causing issues. I have attached the wrapping settings on another screenshot (text_box_wrapping_settings.png)
2. Upon opening file with LibreOffice the formatting for the text boxes is off and they are moved around/over other text on the page
Text boxes are wrapping incorrectly around/over other text and objects on the document.
Text box stays formatted how it was in the docx. This can be accomplished by changing the wrap settings on LibreOffice to Optimal Page Wrapping for the text box.
User Profile Reset: No
Libre should have chosen the correct wrapping settings based on the microsoft word file. Be it Optimal Page Wrapping or some other setting.

@NISZ Team, I thought you might be interested in this issue
Actually the document ( at least the minimized ) has 2 problems, the problem with the blue shapes has been reported in bug 138162
Note: shape+table wrap problem is already known as bug #76022 and bug #115625 - this is likely a duplicate.
