Description michaelwfogleman 2011-02-26 10:33:07 UTC
I had the problem reported in this openoffice.org bug (http://openoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=109741). To reproduce: after you insert a header in a text document and save it in DOC format, close
and open the file again, a footer is automatically created.
Comment 1 michaelwfogleman 2011-03-22 05:43:12 UTC
Still a problem in 3.3.2.

[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:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugHunting_Session_3.5.0.-1

[REPRODUCIBLE] with LibreOffice 3.5.3.2 (Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80), German UI, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German.

Following these steps similar to the original description:
1) Start LO.
2) Create a new Writer document.
3) Add a header (but no footer!).
4) Save the document as .doc (Word 97/2000/XP/2003) file.
5) Close the document.
6) Open the document again:
7) Header AND footer are present.

Not terrible, but annoying, because it may break the page layout.

It seems to be the same bug as bug 47838 . See my comment there (#28) for the generalized description of the problem.

oops... my comment is 29! But 28 contains all needed info too :) I tried to make the conclusion for developers.

Checked with:
Version: 4.2.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 087a610fcd5c0c354a9ed6bfccd3451b667d62a3
TinderBox: Win-x86@6-debug, Branch:master, Time: 2013-08-04_21:41:24
Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview 64 bit

Could not reproduce. Seems footer is not added.
Comment 9 Luke Deller 2014-09-06 11:59:27 UTC
I too cannot reproduce (using LibreOffice 4.2.4).

Let's mark this as resolved.
