Description William Cattey 2011-07-22 11:26:47 UTC
Created attachment 49434 [details]
Native OOo format with simple 3 column doc.

Repeat by:

Create OOo document with a multi-column format.
Set the separator line to "NONE".
Save in default odf format.
SaveAs Word 2007 XML format.

Expected behavior:
Separator Line should be NONE.

Actual behavior:
Separator Line of 0.05pts is set.

Going back to the odf version, the value NONE is properly recorded, but
is never properly saved/restored in .docx format.

Example files are attached.

Here is the first attachment for what I see in LO writer.

I think this is the erroneous behavior described by the reporter.

Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2012-01-30 03:28:18 UTC
reproduced in LibO 3.6.0 master on Fedora 64 bit
when save in docx, separator style is lost,
When open in docx, column width also lost
Comment 6 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2014-01-23 13:47:10 UTC
Still there in 4.2.
Comment 7 steve 2015-04-26 09:17:50 UTC
Reproduce steps:

1. Open Test File "Native OOo format with simple 3 column doc." with LO
2. save as docx file
3. reopen docx file with LO

Currently: separator style stays none

Expected: see currently

BUT the contents all jump to the first column!

In LO Version:
