Description flack 2011-07-18 07:28:59 UTC
I have an RTF document containing a table. The document opens fine in various MS Office 2003 and 2010, but in LibreOffice, it is completely unreadable, the entire table is collapsed to one line. I don't know if that's important, but the RTF was generated by SAP (and AFAIR afterwards edited in Word 2010)

Reproduced with

LO 3.4.1 (OOO340m1 (Build:101))
Ubuntu 10.04.2 x86
Linux 2.6.32-33-generic Russian UI
Comment 5 flack 2011-08-02 12:29:49 UTC
Just tested the same file in openoffice 3.3 mac, it works fine there
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-08-25 01:46:02 UTC
[Reproducible] with reporter's sample document and "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC1 -
WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:301)]", for details see
attached screenshots!

Sample document looks fine with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.3  - WIN7  Home
Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:301  Tag]" 

Please also see "Bug 40246 - FILEOPEN RTF: All rows or columns of table shown as one" and "Bug 37886 - FILEOPEN TABLES RTF cell content is shifted upward into other cells with table cells being deleted", what might have the same roots (or even be DUPs).

GSoC is already over, but given that now I'm the author of the writer rtf import/export filters, I try to fix bugs in them.


Can you test this on master, please? It has a brand new rtf import filter which parses the document almost fine, but the font in the table was not "Courier New", I just fixed that:

Comment 9 Miklos Vajna 2011-08-25 16:31:55 UTC
Marking as fixed, as cherry-picking this to -3-4 won't be possible (since it's a brand new filter).

Comment 12 Björn Michaelsen 2011-12-23 13:26:11 UTC
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
Comment 13 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-03-19 12:54:48 UTC
Fix confirmed in LO 3.5.1. Closing. Thank you.
