I have attached two documents.
The first is a .odt with the first line indented
The second is the same document saved as W97/2003. All indentations are lost
I see it now.
Typical case of an export filter simply ignoring a property that the target format doesn't support. The paragraphs are formatted with "automatic indent", which Word does not support.
Also happens with DOCX export. Also reproducible with LO 188.8.131.52.
If you wish to get a Word-compatible first-line indent, you should not use "automatic" but specify an explicit value.

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

According to https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Indents_and_Spacing automatic indent is only when in Writer. It does not explicitly say it, but this applies only to odt files.

Sorry but I set this to NEW. This *is* a bug.
It is true that ooxml does not support "auto" first line indent, but when saving to docx/doc LibreOffice should at least preserve the calculated first line indent value.
For instance, if in an ODT file the first line indent is "auto", and it is calculated that the auto indent value should be "480 twips", in this "480 twips" which equals whatever cm or whatever pt should be written to the docx/doc. Otherwise, it is a format loss.
Miklos Vajna: What do you think of my comment in comment 9?
This sounds reasonable, the Word export filter also bakes calculated layout-level info to the Word output at other places already.

I guess it's in:
I think it's in DocxAttributeOutput::FormatLRSpace.
where currently it only checks for GetTextFirstLineOffset():
sal_Int32 const nFirstLineAdjustment = pLRSpace->GetTextFirstLineOffset();
if (nFirstLineAdjustment > 0)
pLRSpaceAttrList->add( FSNS( XML_w, XML_firstLine ), OString::number( nFirstLineAdjustment ) );
I think it should also be checking the pLRSpace->IsAutoFirst(), and if true, then nFirstLineAdjustment should be calculated the same way as what we have done in sw/source/core/text/itrcrsr.cxx:250.
