I updated the mimitype
Comment 2 Florian Reisinger 2012-11-22 11:31:09 UTC
Can confirm it with caption and list on Win7 x64 with Version 3.6.1.2 (Build ID: e29a214)
Comment 3 Joel Madero 2012-12-06 21:59:00 UTC
Confirmed, marking:


Version 4.1.0.0.alpha0+ (Build ID: dfd474710f959dcf78038deb990c3618b467ec6)
New (Confirmed)
Priority
Normal (can prevent high quality work with interoperability with MSO)
Low (forms in general not used a tremendous amount for the vast amount of people)

Reproducible with LibreOffice 4.2.5 and 4.3.0 on Debian. I attach a screenshot with MS WordViewer as a referents representation.

Repro with LO 6.2+. 
Started from LO 3.5, LO 3.4 was able to open it. Looks like regression.
Note: this is Word 95 DOC. If saved in MSO as DOC, opens fine.

Only the list, the caption was never okay.
Comment 11 Aron Budea 2019-06-08 17:13:56 UTC
Bibisected the list/checkbox issue to the following range using repo bibisect-43all:
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=a44dda4b7d71f8d2b4e0cca79d732eab89588c3a..a705aec5117fe9123236ebdeb0d6f271b83f8af4

The caption is now good in 6.4.0.0.alpha0+ (2d5821ceacf399ec9267a3704ee0b2cc8a598f04) / Ubuntu 18.04.
At some point the grey list background started showing as well, but it still isn't filled.

This Bug is still present and behaves like Aron Budea wrote for 6.4.0.0 alpha.

However this file is even not usable in Office365 (file error and can not be opened for changing at all, changes must be done in desktop version).

Looks like combination of pretty old format and modern apps.
