While saving document in .doc format, if the table cells are merged, they again unmerged. And it remove the Table Formating while saving in .docx format.
I have attached a sample document that shows the cell merging bug.
1) Open the sample document ("MergeTest1.odt")
2) Save as .doc ("../XP/2003")
3) Close and reopen
The 4th and 5th cells in the 1st column should be merged vertically.
The 4th and 5th cells in the 4th column should be merged vertically.
The 2nd and 3rd cells in the 2nd row should be merged horizontally.
Observed behaviour: The vertically merged cells in column 1 and 4 appear as separate individual cells. They are not merged.
The horizontally merged cells in row 2 ARE still merged.
Created attachment 66524 [details]
Test document for reproducing the bug.
