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.

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.
