An example of the problem

Problem description: I made some documents and tried to open them in Linux (Kubuntu/Xubuntu) and Windows (7) and they look a little bit different, having the used fonts installed in both systems. For example, one thing that was originally at the end of a page in Windows, in Linux appears at the beggining of the next page.

I don't know why this happens, maybe lines or fonts have different heights or something. By the way, I don't know if it's relevant but in these documents I tried I used fontwork.

Current behavior: Documents looks different in Linux and Windows using the same version of LibreOffice (4.5)

Expected behavior: Documents looks the same way in both systems.

Platform (if different from the browser): Kubuntu 12.04/Xubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0

Thanks for bugreport
I also often encounter problem that on Linux text is slightly bigger than on Windows. Approximately on 7%. Layout becomes corrupted.

I confirm this on Libo 4.0 Version (Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7)

Win7- 32bits and Ubuntu 12.04 64bits (same police installed on the two os).

I think that maybe LibreOffice is using different font library each OS.
