One of the Lotus Word Pro documents I used.

When opening a Lotus Word Pro file in LibO Writer, it opens as an empty document. The filename appears in the title bar, but the display is blank. Problem appears under Windows 7 (64-bit) and Windows XP (32-bit). On a third computer with Windows 7 (32-bit), the file also opened as an empty document immediately after the installation of Libre Office; after a reboot is worked fine. Example-file is attached.

LibO 3.3.4 and 3.6.0 master on Fedora 64 bit hangs (and seriously consumes resources of system)
Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-04 05:30:33 UTC
@ Cedric and Michael
Please, look at this. Writer hangs when opening document
Comment 4 A (Andy) 2013-05-02 19:11:12 UTC
reproducible with LO 4.0.2.2 (Win7 Home, 64bit)
Result: opens an empty page
Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2013-05-03 06:31:52 UTC
in 4.0.2 on Fedora (RFR) 64 bit also opens as empty document, not hangs.
Title corrected accordingly
Comment 6 tommy27 2013-08-31 15:52:42 UTC
tested with 4.1.1.2 under Win7 64bit.
the .lwp test file is opened but look empty.

@Uwe 
can you confirm that the test file is not empty if opened with other softwares rather than LibO?
Comment 7 tommy27 2013-11-04 21:11:03 UTC
still opened as empty file using Version: 4.2.0.0.alpha0+

@ schreiberinfo@gmx.de

please do not change version to a newer release, as indicated it must be the "earliest version" the bug appeared

also do not change priority withoud entering a valid argumentation

I revert your changes and I tell that issue is still reproducibile with recent LibO 5.1 alpha daily build under Win8.1x64

document is in file format version 10, but the filter only handles version 11 and above

Comment 15 Caolán McNamara 2020-02-03 20:20:10 UTC
contemporary LibreOffice reports that the document failed to open, previous versions would present a blank document without reporting that the import had failed
