LibreOffice Writer doesn't open table as like MS Word

LibreOffice 3.6.4 Writer on Linux Mint14 doesn't open MS Word file with table correctly. You can open attached file by MS Word and do this by LO and you will see the difference. Thanks in advance ! Happy holidays !

The only thing I can see is that there should normally be 3 rows at the second page. Opening this file in Word for Mac (using Mac OSX 10.8.2) result in 3 rows at the second page. Opening this file with LO 3.6.4.3 and latest master LO 4.1 will result in '2 rows of the table at the next page'. I'll upload a pdf how it's look like with LibreOffice 3.6.4.3 and a pdf how it's look like using Word for Mac.

Can you please verify this is the issue?

Thanks for your fast answer.

I now can see what you mean with the the lost formatting.

I'll attach a pdf I created with LibreOffice 4.0.0.2 rc2. There you can indeed conclude that it is a linux only problem so far.

Behavior: the 'y' and '160' is in LO 4.0 and Word for Mac using Mac OSX 10.8.2 placed at left and right of the table cell. When I open this using LO 4.0.0.2 rc2 using Linux Mint 14 they are 'centered'.

Following [1] I mark this bug as 'medium' 'normal' because this does prevent you making high quality work; but doesn't resolve in data loss/crash/freeze etc. Also it is not impossible to open the whole doc, just a loss of formatting.

I change also component to 'filters'

This bug seems to primarily be related to tabstops.  Remove one of the (hidden) tabs from those lines that stack the y above the 160 to get it to look like the dot-leader shown in Word.

Huh??  Perhaps I meant to say whitespace?  Just remove one space to fix...

This looks like an "every TWIP matters" bug.
