Description Telesto 2021-06-10 07:57:39 UTC
Different page layout converting from DOC to DOCX

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file (ODT from DOC)
2. Scroll down to bottom (check layout)
3. Save as DOCX
4. File reload
5. Scroll down & check layout

Trimmed down variant of attachment 156473 [details] (bug 111341)

No real clue where this goes wrong: "Hinweise Zur Archivzeitüberwachung" on page 3 has different Char Font Family

Actual Results:
Notice additional page and orange marked text above the image

Expected Results:
Same as ODT

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

1. This is not "DOC to DOCX" but DOC to ODT to DOCX"
2. There should be minimal case (DOC from MSO), not large document.
3. comparison screenshot would nice
4. following all that, you should see if Inherited or regression.

Just wanted to note that a minimal ODT would also be fine, but then it should be "ODT to DOCX", not "DOC to DOCX". The original source of the ODT should not matter, and it's the actual content of the ODT that gets converted, not its history.
Comment 4 Telesto 2021-06-10 11:07:30 UTC
FWIW: it's not unique to DOC/ODT. Really trivial

The source file (DOC) does the same thing on DOCX conversion. However ODT from DOC  (is kind of mix of 2 formats; surely setting wise)

The attached file is kind of minimal already (if you want to see the effect.. grains of sand in the previous pages - small differences - adding up.. causing pretty obvious page layout shift at some point

It can be trimmed down to "Char Font Family difference: 5 in DOC/ODT 3 DOCX if that's truly the cause (and shifting (additional pages) the symptom)

Spacing between "Sicherungs- und Wiederherstellungsfunktionalität im Archivsystem abgrenzen" changes.. causing page shift

I confirm in the style inspector that Hanging punctuation changes to True. Character distance disappears completely.
