Test .docx

Compared with the display under Word 2003+OOX extension, LibreOffice 3.4b3 has:

- No page number (Word shows it in the middle of the footer)
- No header/footer on the second page (Word shows the same header/footer as on page 1 also after the section break)

Regarding the second issue: seemingly, Word uses the "default" type (file header2.xml/footer2.xml) for all pages.

In Document.xml:

<w:sectPr w:rsidR="00DD70C3" w:rsidRPr="00C01F69" w:rsidSect="008552FC">
  <w:headerReference w:type="even" r:id="rId7"/>
  <w:headerReference w:type="default" r:id="rId8"/>
  <w:headerReference w:type="first" r:id="rId11"/>
  <w:footerReference w:type="even" r:id="rId9"/>
  <w:footerReference w:type="default" r:id="rId10"/>
  <w:footerReference w:type="first" r:id="rId12"/>

_rels/document.xml.rels has:

<Relationship Id="rId7"  Type=".../header" Target="header1.xml"/>
<Relationship Id="rId8"  Type=".../header" Target="header2.xml"/>
<Relationship Id="rId11" Type=".../header" Target="header3.xml"/>
<Relationship Id="rId9"  Type=".../footer" Target="footer1.xml"/>
<Relationship Id="rId10" Type=".../footer" Target="footer2.xml"/>
<Relationship Id="rId12" Type=".../footer" Target="footer3.xml"/>

if there is a second issue then please please use a separate bug. It just makes things very much less confusing

[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:

needinfo keyword redundant by needinfo status.

Bug is NOT reproducible anymore with LibreOffice (Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80), German langpack installed, running on MacOS X 10.6.8 German UI. It was most likely fixed in the 3.5.x development process (many DOCX related problems have been fixed now).

The only remaining issue is that the page number (now present) in the footer is not centered (like mentioned in the description) but left-aligned; but this is a separate and minor issue different from the current one. (We may create a special bug report for the mis-alignment, if necesssary).

Therefore I close this bug report. Feel free to open it again if the issue is still reproducible for you.

-- Changing 'Status' to RESOLVED/WORKSFORME.
-- Improved 'Component', 'Version' etc. according to original description.
-- Added to new meta-bug, just out of historical interest: it is not only important to see the open header/footer bugs, but also to see which header/footer bugs are fixed now.
