Steps to reproduce:
1. Creating a textfield with some text inside
2. Saving the document in .docx
3. Reopen the document with LibreOffice Writer
The textfield created doesnt appears anymore whereas it appears if opened with Microsoft Word 2010
The textfield should appears !
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
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.

does not show text field when opened in LibreOffice
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 54235 ***
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.
