3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/36144/+attachment/8047/+files/pd18.doc && lowriter -nologo pd18.doc

it looks as it does in Word.

4) What happens instead is the OLE object at the top of page 1 is mis-shifted to the left.

Problem reproducible in:
LOdev 3.5.0beta2 
Build ID: 8589e48-760cc4d-f39cf3d-1b2857e-60db978
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2013-01-20 13:44:40 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

The file looks different in LO and in Word 2007: 
on page 1 and 5 and regarding the colour of the footer.

Comparative screenshot of MS Word 2007 and LO Writer 4.3.0

Reproducible with LibreOffice 4.2.5 and 4.3.0 on Debian and Windows 7. I attach a screenshot which demonstrates a correct representation and the issue. I do not see any problem with font clor in a footer.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)

appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
