I confirmed this is still an issue for LibreOffice 4.0 on Windows 8. After saving as a docx and reopening, the text or text box is nowhere to be found. I use Microsoft Word Viewer to view the document, and then I can see the text.

So previously the entire textbox was invisible, though it was still selectable if you clicked in the right place, and that issue was resolved in 4.2, as a black border now appears its corners, though this wasnt set. But similar to before, the text inside of the textbox is still not visible and double-clicking on the textbox will show an empty text area that doesnt take up the entire area of the textbox.

Note that this issue only happens when trying to open docx files saved in LO 4.0 and below.

If I round-trip the file first in Word 2003, then the textbox is visible. But still the original document shows no text in LO 6.2 master.
