LibreOffice 4 introduces the feature
"Enable attaching comments to document text ranges. fdo#38244"
- Open a writer document
- Attache a comment to a text rangeLibO
- Save as doc
- Close the document
- Re-open the document
Now the comment is atatched to a position between characters. The range is lost.
Try to open LibreOffice-produced doc in Word an Word-produced doc in LibreOffice revealed that both, import and export filters fail to handle comments atteched to document text ranges.
I can confirm this behaviour in 4.0rc1. Comments for text ranges are not exported to .doc. However, they are working fine in the export to .docx.
Please update the .doc export to include comments for text ranges.
As Gerry has confirmed this, marking as NEW.
Minor (wouldn't really prevent high quality work from what I can see, just an annoyance)
High (as it's a new feature in 4.0, it should really work correctly)

Interesting to see that the new bug that was opened makes the old bug report a duplicate... :-) Normally it is the other way around.
It's indeed not logical, but hey, it's already done, doesn't make too much sense to reverse it now.
Anyway, I'll look into this.
We tend not to do that in QA but sometimes we'll do a BT or a bibisect and just mark the older one as a dupe. We'll try to be a bit better about this as QA but in general I think we're pretty good :)

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Can the status of this bug be changed to RESOLVED -> FIXED? According to comment 7, there was already a patch. Did it solve the issue?
The import patch only supports comments which start and end at the same paragraph, so it's not complete. The export part is missing. So please don't close it yet.
