Paragraph Format Import Bug

This bug was found in OO 3.4 and LibreOffice v4.1 beta2 running in windows 7 and Linux. It appears that OpenOffice loses formatting when importing MS Word 2003/2007 .doc files with advanced styles. I have attached an example.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached ParagraphCenterBug.doc document in writer 
2. Open attached ParagraphCenterBug.doc document in Word2003/2007/2010
3. Compare the documents. 

Notice the the indent of the line (www.xpnet.com). The import filter seems to be incorrectly indenting all new lines in the centered text. New paragraphs are centered correctly.

Note 1: I believe this problem comes from the paragraph getting a hanging indent via numbering position of the outline numbering level 5. 

Note 2: There is a newline between the two lines as a "VT" character. If you copy paste that new line character from Word to LO, LO continues to have the misaligned text. However, if you simply press enter to add a new line in LO, the correct alignment is used.

.docx version working in LO, broken in OO

The .docx version of this bug has been fixed in the LO importer. If you open the .docx version in OO3.4 or it will be incorrectly formatted. Can the LO .docx fix be backported to the .doc importer?

Comment 4 Luke 2014-09-16 22:47:27 UTC
When this file is saved as .docx(attachment 81494 [details]), LO had the same issue in version, but by it was fixed. 

Would a bisect to find the commit in the 4.0.x branch that fixed .docx importer be useful to fix the .doc importer?

May possibly have been this commit? I don't see any other obvious candidates in the bibisected range

Confirmed by building that it was commit b95d203bc17c83ec0fe5139f519d53ed1d842d3a which fixed this case for .docx

Adding Cc: to cedric.bosdonnat.ooo@free.fr; Is there any chance this could be applied to the .doc filter as well? Thanks

Thus, I close this as RESOLVED WORKSFORME

Writer vs Word

You need to compare the .doc to the docx or Writer vs Word. The close parenthesis should be under the "W".

Still not fixed in:

Miklos may be interested in this. Since:

Fixed the docx issue. The likely solution is to not load the default values of the styles in doc import filter.
