problematic document

Opening this documents in LibreOffice gives such bad results they are (nearly) unusable. The difficulty seems to be the use of images in headers / footers that are not scaled nor placed correctly.

Compare with the PDFs generated from Microsoft Word.

Compare with the result from Abiword, or antiword (PostScript file). They both give suboptimal, but usable results.

The antiword PostScript files uses GhostScript extensions, use e.g. Ghostview to see it.

I understand, but if you remove the image and text which are not visible in the pdf, then you get a document very similar to what is seen in the pdf.
I do not know how it is possible to have some text in the doc which is not exported in the pdf.

Checked with:
LO 3.6.3.1 
Build ID: f8fce0b
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

The problem with this file are Apsal.NET, Description des modifications and company graphics embedded somehow. When those are deleted, file looks good.
BTW: I don't see those objects in Word 2010.

Word document corrected in 2010.

Hi all,

The original word document was corrupted !
I have open it in word 2010.
- Search Graphic parts (we can search object in word) => the third object found is in header and we cannot see it ???
- So, Ctrl-A in header, paste the content in a new doc, and there is one big image and 2 lines text we don't see in WORD header...but we can see in Libo :-)
- Deleted the graphics
- Copy/paste of this text to overwrite original header.
- The new WORD document is joined here.

So as Libo was correct here and has show that word was'nt.
I close this "bug" as notabug.

Comment 13 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-02-22 14:02:00 UTC
When importing a document in MS Word format, it is more important to do the same as MS Word (for compatibility reasons) that something "correct". Thus reopening.

See http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2013-February/046333.html
Comment 14 Jorendc 2013-05-29 23:56:54 UTC
I can confirm this using Linux Mint 15 x64 with LibreOffice Version: 4.2.0.0.alpha0+ Build ID: c7da99f37197fb1446af07f17ba33978f15e7f6 

Therefore I mark it as NEW.

Kind regards,
