The Word document

I have a special Word document and Libre make a mistake with the import.
On side 3 there is a table with the row 1 to 35.
Libre show me only the row 5 to 35.

Indeed, reproducible with the current master (Build ID: 32af02b) and LO under Ubuntu 11.10
The good news is that you can get a correct view of the table: in the table properties go to Text Flow tab and check "Allow row to break across pages and columns"

Best regards. JBF

Hello Jean,

I don't find the point => "Allow row to break across pages and

But when I make a "forced line break" after the Point 18 I see all the row in the document. But then I have 4 pages.

In version of Libre Office the bug is still present.

Additionally now also the head area of ​​the document is destroyed.
I must use OpenOffice when I will work with this document.
Comment 6 Petr Mladek 2012-10-23 09:53:33 UTC
Hmm, you are using the limits of the page size. It is enough, to use slightly different font or slightly change the border size and the tables do not fit. I think that you could have troubles with compatibility across different Office products, versions, ...

Of course, we should do our best to be compatible => added some Writer experts.

Well, this is a kind of corner case => it can't block the release => lowering the severity a bit.
