Created attachment 66306 [details]
example odt which when saved as docx format, loses data
Data is not retained within a text box when an odt file is saved as a .docx
This was previously a problem with .doc (#45724) as well, but that has been resolved as of 184.108.40.206*
To recreate issue, open writer and:
1/ Select Form Control Toolbar (View → Toolbars → Form Controls)
2/ Turn On Design Mode (icon on Form Control toolbar)
3/ Draw a “Text Box”
4/ Turn Off Design Mode
5/ Enter text data into text box
6/ Save document as a .docx file.
7/ Open MS format ver in LibreOffice OR MS Office – data (and most formatting)

example docx file which has lost data compared to the originally attached odt file
This affects me too.
Yes, unfortunately it is a problem for me too. There must be hundreds of other people having this issue, but only few take the time to comment on this. Thank you LibreOffice team for looking into this :-) Cheers - Rene'
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.6.1 on Fedora 64 bit
msWord 2007 opens produced docx, but without fields
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproduced
Workaround: save as doc
Can confirm this docx bug with LibreOffice "Version 220.127.116.11 (Build ID: e29a214)" running under Ubuntu
PS The the previous .doc equivalent of this bug (#45724) is now successfully resolved in LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 - thank you all!
Also interested in seeing this resolved.

I believe I just encountered this problem in LO 4.2.4 on Ubuntu Linux and 4.3.1 on Windows XP. When I save a document with form text fields, the text fields, themselves, don't appear but I can enter data in the areas where the text fields were located.
When I save my document as a Word 2003 file, the text boxes appear properly.
