I can see, that there are a lot of differences, but since Bugzilla has the basic rule "One bug report per issue", we can't put them all together in one report. So please focus on one problem here and open different reports for further problems. Please also have a look for duplicates.


I've also noticed, that it is a master from Word 1997-2003. As far as I know, if you open in in Word 2006 and later you don't have the garantee, that document is displayed correct. I'm not able to compare LO and Word 1997-2003

the main issue is that ugly space below the header. For the others it is not so hard as we can workaround most of them re-arranging the things manually... but we cannot fix that spacing issues
