The graphics in this document are not shown correctly

Bug 53618 -  WW8: Graphic content moved, seems larger after import  

I submitted this bug report nearly six years ago (August 2005) but I notice that the problem is still present in LibreOffice 3; OO.o 3.2 on Linux (Ubuntu) and OO.0 3.2 Windows XP

I find it a major shortcoming in Libre Office as I can not presume that Graphics created in MS Word will be reproduces accurately in Open Office.

See the bug side by side LibO 3.6 MS Word 2010

So, confirmed - status set to new and changed to a permission problem.

@Rainer: Could you please check this bug (Not confirm, just if everything is done properly...

I still see some questions:
a) Is this a general problem or only visible with this particular document and the
   particular picture?
b) what type of picture / object causes the problem? 

Currently only 1 document in the world with some very strange creation of graphics showing curves in a coordinates system is affected, so I don't see this one with major severity

BTW: I would prefer component WRITER with a  Summary link like "FILEOPEN particular .doc ....", because I do not understand these dev. Components and bcause no normal user will find a DUP under such a Component.

Due to reporter's comments the problem is inherited from OOo, so the appropriate version is 3.3.0 Beta2, I modified

I do not think that it is a good idea to use a Whiteboard key word "openofficebug" without any explication. For what should it be useful?

I tested the file on LibreOffice version running on Windows 7 (32 bit) and the problem is still present. The graph it still displaced from the axes and the axis labels are also displaced from the grid of squares.

This bug is still present in LibreOffice running on Windows 7
Whenever I try and edit a document in LibreOffice that has graphics in it that were created in MS Word, there is a chance that the graphics will be messed up. Things have got better over the last 11 years, but I still can not use LibreOffice confidently when sharing documents with colleagues.

I have just checked the document using LibreOffice running on Windows 7. The bug is still present. It is now nearly 12 years since I initially reported this bug. Please do not close it. It would be great if someone could work on this issue.
