Description shompol 2013-01-09 18:00:14 UTC
Created attachment 72737 [details]
Save as .doc and open in MS Word to see the problem

In the file attached, the document was created in LibreOffice and saved as MS Word 2003 in .doc. 

When opened in MS Word "Installed and maintained intranet" and the rest of the line is shifted right by half a line, with a giant tab preceding it. When document is opened in Google Drive, the same problem is apparent, but when opened in Libre Office it looks normal.

Thanks for reporting!

I can reproduce this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.2 using LibreOffice rc3.
I verified the exported doc using Word for Mac 2011.

Following [1] I mark this bug as 'medium normal'.

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 (4.4.2 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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Thank you for your help!
