Description D. Charlie Curcija 2012-10-29 20:17:08 UTC
Created attachment 69250 [details]
Attached file contains original MS Word numbering, which does not show in Writer

When opening MS Office 2010 word document (docx) in Writer, all automatic numbering for Figure, Table and Equation numbers are blank.  Numbering in MS Word was created using Reference and Cross-Reference feature and has been the standard way to do automated numbering in Word for several versions now.  The document was created and edited in MS Word 32, running on Windows 7 64 bit machine (32 bit version of Office is generally recommended by Microsoft)

Original docx file attached for your verification.

reproducible and confirmed with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

All numbering for figures and equations are missing.  If you open the same file in Word 2007 everything is fine.  

In addition, I recognized two further bugs.  
First, the images and text in the header and footer are grey in the original Word document (opened in Word 2007), but in LO they are black.
Second, in the orginal document the page numbering in the header is aligned right, but in LO this is missed and the page numbering is following right after the header text.

I can reproduce that with on Linux (Gentoo's prebuilt binary package), both with the attached file and some other real-world files as well.

The annoying part is that this numbering is not preserved after a save, so it's effectively a case of a (minor) data loss.

Apprently the 'Figure Number' in the caption was fixed in master.

Failed to reproduce that. (see Bug 71310). When I roundtrip attachment 80191 [details] (open using LibreOffice, re-save it as .docx with different name, reopen it with LibreOffice) the number is generated first correctly. Right after that (repainting) it result in a wrong caption number. See mentioned bug for more details.

At least, the behavior is improved :-)!

** 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
