I have attached a .zip file, which includes a rdown_2.doc, and a rdown_2.docx which was created by saving the .doc file as .docx with LibreOffice 3.4.5. When the file is opened again with LibreOffice, there is one line break in each header (instead of two), and a line break (which is centered) is added before the two columns in the second page. 

Expected result: two line breaks in each header and only one line break before the columns, just like in the .doc file

Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Seems two line breaks in each header are visible in docx with additional centered line break before colums (where the text is visible in two of them, not in one as in doc file).
All in all there are visible differences.

Confirmed this one. Marking as Normal -> High. Workaround is don't use docx format but still going to cause a lot of problems for some users. Potential to make it very hard to make professional looking work. Thanks for reporting

It seems this particular bug is fixed. There is, however, a regression in 4.4 Linux: a number is added before each header that shouldn't be there.

Please report a new bug. Thanks
