Description Olivier 2011-11-10 07:48:26 UTC
Created attachment 53372 [details]
Minimal example


I have a minimalist lowriter document with a figure and a caption. When the document is saved as .doc and read again with lowriter, the presentation is modified. This shouldn't happen. See attached minimal example with included explanations.

Best regards,

reproduced in 3.5.0 rc 3 on Fedora 64 bit
anchoring of picture from "to character" becomes "as character"
hight of frame from "auto size" becomes fixed
MS Word 2003 opens this produced doc file exactly as Writer, therefore problem is in saving file. And my question is:
It is possible save this document into doc correctly?
MS Word 2007 can not save anchoring of picture, but can save hight "auto size" into doc format.
Comment 2 sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-10 02:40:02 UTC
reproducible in 3.3.4 , so change version, and it is no regression
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2013-05-08 22:11:00 UTC

Dear oc-spam65,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
