Created attachment 70303 [details]
document created in libre office and is singles page two columns - left hand side is corrected version of right hand side.
Edited .odt saved as .doc (word 97 ++). When I open writer I get message that .doc is being recovered - then immediately that recovery has failed. However the document is then opened with latest changes updated. The document is then useable.
The message appears to repeat every time I open writer.
not reproducible with LO 126.96.36.199 (Win7 Home, 64bit)
Does this issue still persist for you with the latest release of LO? If not, then I would propose to close this bug report.
I have not seen any re-occurrence and am now on 188.8.131.52. However I am not sure that I have tried to make any odt to word conversions recently so let me try one and I will advise the result. i hope that will be before end this week 26/4
josl: I put it as WFM reading your last comment.
If you reproduce this, try the last LO version (4.1.2) and if you reproduce this with the last version, don't hesitate to reopen this tracker.
