The same file before saving and after saving.
LibreOffice writer can not save fontwork as .docx
but it can save it as .odt
Platform (if different from the browser): Windows 8, ubuntu 12.
I've attached a picture of the problem.
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
Fontwork in .docx is not supported. File can be saved as .doc.

In such case LibreOffice should at least warn the user.
bfoman is right (Tested with latest master)

Reproducible with LO 22.214.171.124, Win 8.1
Still happening on latest version 126.96.36.199.Windows 10 Home.
Fontwork disappears on re-opening a Writer document which has been saved as a .DOCX format, it works okay with .DOC.
This is not ideal, I encourage lots of people to use LibreOffice and always set their defaults to .DOCX in order to maintain compatibility with anybody else they communicate with.
Would be very good if this could get itself fixed!
The problem is complex. I have collected some remarks on https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Remarks_on_Fontwork_and_TextWarp
As a first step, I propose to convert LibreOffice Fontwork to MS Office TextWarp. This will not preserve the filling and outline. But MS Office will show the text in the current character style, which will be black font color as default. The current character style is hidden in LibreOffice Fontwork and only visible in edit mode of the Fontwork text. That proposal is in https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/74057/ for review.
There would be more to do: Import of TextWarp in docx-documents (bug 125884) and the import and export of character fill and outline (bug 119221).
Regina Henschel committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#51195, tdf#100348 Convert Fontwork to TextWarp on export
It will be available in 6.4.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
I have not set this to "fixed", because loading a fontwork in docx is still missing.
