Description Michel Rudelle 2011-06-13 02:39:11 UTC
LibreOffice 3.4.0 [OOO340m1 (Build:12)] - locale: FR
Window Seven Edition Familiale Premium SP1 - 64bits

Use the attached file "chien_au_louvre.docx" which was created with Word2011 on MAC:
 - Open this .docx with LibreOffice 3.4.0 (there is just one page)
 - The expected result is in three parts (see the attached screen copy from Word: "chien_au_louvre.jpg"):
     - a picture of a dog in the background
     - a small picture of a statue in the left lower corner
     - a text in the upper right corner
 - What happens on my computer:
   - At the opening, I just see the dog
   - Working with the document does not allow me to retrieve the text and the small picture of the statue.

This was confirmed by others users.

And the .docx file created with Word2011 on MAC can be downloaded there:
(Sorry, but as I'm not the author of this file, I can't reduce it)

Reproducible] with reporter's sample document and "LibreOffice 3.4.0  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:12)]": Small image and text are missing.

I could reduce the document using Word2010 on W7, here it is.

I gathered in a single doc 3 results and you can see that we have not the same result as we obtain with Word2010.
The main issue with latest versions (4.1.4 & 4.2.0)is that we have now 3 pages instead of one.

Thanks for providing the needed information :-)!

Lets mark this back to NEW, because now a test document is attached.

I can reproduce this behavior, tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:

The result is still wrong, but I'm not sure this would be beneficial to seek the resolution. I have no need, and I see that my current version of LibreOffice gives a pretty good result with docx documents created with Word 2013 (without image). And much better result than reading the same document with Word 2010 !
I suggest to set the status to RESOLVED - WONTFIX
What do you think?

LibO - Vista-32b

Kind regards,

When opening attachment 91282 [details] from comment #6 in a recent daily (20160826), then change anchoring to paragraph and set wrapping to background, makes the situation much better..
