Description Roderick Burkhardt 2013-03-08 00:11:23 UTC
Problem description: When the docx document opens the format of the document becomes scatters and it places this on pages where they shouldnt be. ie: Desired employment tablet is suppose to have the information on the top of page two inside it so that you can check mark the boxes and fill in the answers to the question. This repeats itself on page 3 where all the stuff in the the table disappears. Attached it the docx file i was opening. If i send it to someone that has a windows machine with office they can open it and save as just a doc format and than it opens correctly.

Steps to reproduce:
1. if you open the file in writer 4.0 and up you will see what happens. 
2. ....
3. ....

Current behavior:

Expected behavior:

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Comment 5 Buovjaga 2015-03-22 11:26:29 UTC
Confirmed with MS Word viewer.

The tables in the first page should be side by side with the leftmost table aligned to the left.
The Web Project Management table on pg 2 should be at the top of the page.
LibreOffice shows the document with 4 pages while Word viewer with 3.

Two tables (GRADES, RANGE) not aligned to the left and makes blank lines in 1st page.The Web Project Management table now not at the top of the 2st page.LibreOffice shows the document with 4 pages.
Confirmed with Versions: OOo 3.0.0 (Inherited from OOo),LibO 3.3.0,LibO 5.2.7,
LibO 6.0.0

When I open it in LO and save a copy as doc even worse mess with tables and shows 5 pages.
