Description Kobus 2012-02-22 04:41:32 UTC
Problem description: 
When I save the document to Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP some of the text on the first page is not in the saved (.doc) version. My wife experienced this on Ubuntu 11.10 with LibreOffice 3.4.4 and I tried it on Ubuntu 11.04 with LibreOffice 3.3.4 with the same effect.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load the attached ODF document in writer.
2. Notice the text to the right of the photograph on page 1.
3. Save the documents in Word 97/2000/XP format.
4. Open the .doc document. 

Alternative steps:
1. Save the document in .doc format.
2. Open the document and edit the text to the right of the image on page 1.
3. Save the document (in .doc) format and close it.
4. Open the document.

Current behavior:
The text on page 1 to the right of the photograph is gone. I've had attempts where this didn't happen, but then the next attempt the text was lost.

Expected behavior:
The content of the document should be preserved.

Still valid for latest LO 4.2 master build 2013-09-16.

interestingly deleting the "P" in the top left corner in the .ODT file using backspace deletes also the text below

Repro Lo 6.5+ frame lost wheb saving to .doc. (saving to .docx moves frame).
By opening in MSO verified it's filesave issue. 
This is some special case, beacase frame and floating frame are exported.
No info how .odt was created, it wouldn't surprise that content was copied.
Low priority.

Dear Kobus,

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
