Corrupted RTF

I have saved an odt document as rtf document.
Compare the attached files.

Original ODT
Comment 2 Ulf Zibis 2012-03-01 12:00:57 UTC
There is dataloss, if one creates a new document with enumerations used, and only saves the document in RTF format.
Comment 3 s-joyemusequna 2012-03-02 04:42:32 UTC
Confirmed with LibO 3.3.4, 3.4.5, and 3.5.1 Beta1 on Windows XP.

There is no data loss, but the tabulators are misplaced starting with the paragraph "Fachliche Kompetenzen ..."

In my understanding, formatting is also data.

There are more errors, see my screen shot.
Comment 5 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-03-22 05:39:17 UTC
I see two problems with the import of this RTF file :
1/ titles without numbering -> 0 is added in front of the line
2/ RTF filter seems to not accept negative first line indent.

Side note : if you consider formatting as data, there is nothing in a document that is not data and the keyword dataloss becomes useless.
In this case, no text fragment has been lost in the RTF export, so no data loss.

Miklos : this one is for you. Please feel free to reassign if you can't handle this bug.

Best regards. JBF

Sorry, forgot to mention that I reproduce the problem with LO 3.5.3 rc0+ and master (LibreOffice 3.6.0alpha0+ Build ID: 08ba87c-49d3d39-e67b1bf-879ce36-638d9c) under Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64.
So I set platform and OS accordingly

ODT where wrong negative indentation was removed

- Save it as RTF
- Reopen the RTF
- Compare and wonder ;-)

Ok, so the problem of titles without numbering is not an import problem but is an export problem. If I save the ODT to RTF with Abiword and open this RTF with LO 3.5.2 rc1 the title level 1 is correct.

Another RTF problem:
Bug 48013 - German Umlaute lost on copy via clipboard from RTF
Comment 10 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-05-14 21:56:41 UTC
Title numbering has been solved by Miklos in bug 49692.
Problem remaining in the present case : tab stops are different in rtf file as they are in odt file.

I reproduce the issue with tabs with LibreOffice 4.2.5 and on Debian x86_64. Distances between characters and lines are slightly different in odt and rtf.

RTF export with LO 6.0

Not reproducible anymore for me with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64.

Setting status as WorksForMe. Please feel free to reopen if you disagree.
