Example Word document with multiline vertical text
Following document imported from Word to Writer displayed significantly differently in comparison with Word:
1. Create new document in Word (I used 2007 Word).
2. Insert new table.
3. Add multiline text to cell breaking lines by pressing Enter:
4. Right click with mouse on table cell -> Text Direction -> select vertical text direction.
5. Save document and open it in Writer.
Writer shows text in table cell in single line.
Writer shows multiline text in table cell in multiple lines.
When I break lines in Word with <Shift-Enter> it correctly displayed as multiline in Writer.
1) Word document with examples of multiline texts separated with <Enter> and <Shift-Enter>,
2) same document exported to PDF in Word.

How Word document is displayed in Word
RC2 is bit by bit identical with release version, so separate items in the version picker are useless. Changes have been discussed with Michael Meeks.

This bug report describes problem with incorrect importing of Word document into LibreOffice.
Previously I reported issue similar to your bug report (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38064) and received explanation from user vitriol that you should use <Shift+Enter> to separate lines in vertically aligned paragraph (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38064#c1).
With Shift-Enter it works. Thanks for explanation. I will use it.
But from user point of view it looks strange that Enter not works.
Even if it is described in a different way, I assume this is a duplicate of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34436 (as mentioned above)

Vertical text comparison on Word 2010 and LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 in doc and docx formats
Problem persists with 188.8.131.52
In LO 3.3.0 the text was displayed as multiple lines - but also not rotated.
By LO 3.4.0 it looks much the same as at present (5.0 master - same as in the attached image).
The result wasn't really right before or after, but on balance let's call the lost line breaks a regression.
-> Keywords: regression
-> Whiteboard: preBibisect
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (preBibisect)
