Description Michael Kleidt 2012-05-18 06:38:08 UTC
Created attachment 61803 [details]
original ODT file

When saving a document as MS Office97 .doc, links in the text have the wrong font size. See attachments:

The original ODT document use 4pt font for text and link.

The MS Office97 doc file uses 4pt for the text and 12pt for the link.

In general: when you test document conversion, a document with an uncommen font size help you to find errors very easily. I found 3 errors with a single document.

I try to use LO as my default office at work, so importing and exporting MS Office documents are really importend for me (see Bug 50092).

Confirmed with LOdev 3.6 (master - 18-May-2012 02h44 x86@6-fast; Build ID: 8b1d29b) under Windows Vista 64.

Works fine in LibO 3.3.4 => REGRESSION

[REPRODUCIBLE] on Windows XP in 3.4.4 and 3.5.3 official => set version field

> Works fine in LibO 3.3.4 => REGRESSION

checked => also REPRODUCIBLE in 3.3.4 Windows XP. Could you please check again?

Note that you have to open the saved .doc file with Microsoft Word, _not_ LibO, because LibO display it correctly.

Ah, well, it is possible that this is MSWord bug, but who knows ;)

Retested with OOo 3.1, LibO 3.3.4, LibO 3.4.5, Apache OO 3.4, and LOdev 3.7 (master - 06-Jun-2012 04h12 x86@6-fast; Build ID: b255de8) under Windows XP. 

Same error in all cases, so NO regression - sorry. I opened all files with Word 2007. (I probably opened the file created with LibO 3.3.4 in LibO instead of Word previously).

Additionally I copied the text into Word 2007 (using the clipboard) and saved it as DOC file. It is displayed correctly when opened with Word 2007.

Confirmed behavior with LO under Windows XP.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

With LO under Windows 7 and reading the exported .doc with MS-Office 2007, the problem is solved.
