Description Tony Mugan 2011-01-19 15:25:34 UTC
I have a .doc file which shows some items on two separate pages.
When open in LibreOffice Writer in 3.3 RC3 on Windows 7, it displays as a single page with the items superimposed on each other.

I have also tested with LibreOffice 3.3 RC3 on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick to confirm the behaviour.

The .doc file is attached.

I would be delighted to assist with further testing.

Comment 2 Tony Mugan 2011-01-19 15:35:34 UTC
In Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) using the latest repo version of OpenOffice, the doc opens correctly as two separate pages. 3.2.1 
OOO320m19 (Build:9505)
ooo-build, Ubuntu package 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu

In Libreoffice 3.3 RC3 it shows as a single combined page with contents of the two pages superimposed on each other.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Comment 7 Jorendc 2013-02-17 16:06:48 UTC
Opening this file result in 2 seperate pages. Tested using LibreOffice 4.0.0 with Linux Mint 14 x64. Therefore I mark this as RESOLVED WORKSFORME (we don't know which commit resolve this issue, therefore we don't mark it as FIXED).

If this problem still exist using LibreOffice 4.0.0 or later, please feel free to REOPEN this bug.

Kind regards,
