Description vgango 2012-08-23 08:07:30 UTC
Created attachment 66011 [details]
Document contains 4 tables, but in Writer appears only the last 2!

I have received a file from my colleague, but some part of the document doesn't appear in Writer. That part is ole attachment, and the source is not reachable. The contents of the attachment is in the file (I can recognize it in the source), MS Word and Google Docs display the document correctly, OO or LO Writer don't. What is the problem? Do I need to do something with the program settings or is this a bug?

I have attached a test document: it contains 4 tables, but in Writer the first 2 tables are not visible!

(Changed Version field according to comment #1 -- already in -- and improved Summary a little bit.)
Comment 3 Roman Eisele 2012-10-12 13:29:40 UTC
REPRODUCIBLE also on Mac OS X (10.6.8, Intel) with
* LibreOffice
* LibreOffice
* Master/LOdev (build ID: 1ae1bca;
  pull time: 2012-10-09 04:37:06)

All show only two tables, but, as even a simple application like Apple’s TextEdit shows, there are four tables, two of them as
LINK Word.Document.8 "\\\\venus\\orarend\\Tantárgyfelosztás alaptáblázat 12-13-I.doc" "OLE_LINK2" \a \r  \* MERGEFORMAT

→ Changing Platform to All/All.
