The table in text box is imported incorrectly.
Comment 1 Jorendc 2013-06-25 22:31:45 UTC
I can confirm this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.3 with LibreOffice 4.1.0.1 RC. Only top text is visible, no table.

Kind regards,
Joren

Hello,

I can confirm that the attached document is displayed impropperly/the table inside text box is ignored with
OS: Win7 Home Premium 32bit, LibO version: 4.1.0.1 (Build ID: 1b39567) and
OS: Win7 Home Premium 32bit, LibO version: 3.6.6.2 (Build ID: f969faf) and
OS: Linux Mint 12 64bit, LibO version: 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build: 402).

A short look into the file-information of the doc shows the file was created with MS Word 9.0 (MS Word 2000).
So I created a similar doc with MS Word 2007, saved it as DOCX and DOC and openend both in above mentioned LibO versions and the new docs are displayed as expected.

I suppose this problem only affects documents saved with older MS Word versions that are no longer supported by MS.

Regards,
Jan Koberstein

Nice research Jan. Really appreciated!

@Timar: you know the origin of this document? If it is your document, are you able to reproduce Jan' findings?

Kind regards,
Joren

It is out of question, that you can create a document form scratch, that looks the same and opens well in LibreOffice. Almost all import problems can be worked around that way. In this case, the problem probably is, that a feature of binary doc format is not implemented in LibreOffice -- tables in groupshapes(?). See bug 66040 for the rtf counterpart, which has been fixed already.

Since Andras referenced bug 66040 that Miklos fixed for RTF, I add him and description from that bug. 
DOCX saved with MSO and opened in LO is also wrong.
