Description Clemens Eisserer 2013-05-12 17:19:22 UTC
When saving the attached test document as doc or docx, half of its graphics are lost.

When saving as doc, the border of the graphic element is preserved but the graphic is missing. For docx even the border is missing.

ODT reduced

One should always be specific and prepare minimal test case. 
When DOCX is open in MSO, missing charts and images are on page 5, 7, 8, 10.

Here is ODT reduced which shows the root issue: missing charts and images in DOCX had anchor set TO FRAME and those present set to TO CHARACTER, AS CHARACTER.
So I'll update the title.

Timur (comment 9) has a correct analysis.

I believe this is a duplicate of bug #49184

I observe this problem not only when saving doc (word 97) but also when saving odt.  Certain images are more likely to be lost than others, i.e., repeated attempts tend to lose the same images, not not always the same images.

In addition, I have also observed that after a save, the image in the running program is lost, but exiting and re-opening the just-saved odt restores the lost image.

This is for embedded images in Writer.

I have not yet tested with version 7.
Comment 17 Gwenaël Q. 2022-07-03 23:27:59 UTC
Still an issue

"ODT reduced" from comment 9 will generate a docx that displays the 10 images when opened with libo but not with word2007 ("to frame" images missing)
