MS .doc file fails to import correctly
This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 RC1 running in windows 7 and XP. It appears that LibreOffice loses formatting when importing MS Word 2003 .doc files. I have attached an example.
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.doc document in writer
2. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.doc document in Word2003/Office 365
3. Compare the documents.
There 5 major areas where the import fails. Should submit 5 separate reports for each one?

Comparison of Doc in Word vs Writer
Here I highlight the 5 major areas where the import fails.
thanks for taking the time to report this problem.
Could you please create separate bugs for each specific issue you notice? I can confirm that the layout looks different than in MS Word when opening in LO.
The general rule is one bug per problem. That's the best way to track duplicates and progress when something get's fixed. otherwise we'd have a bug with 60 comments and no obvious info which of the issues are remaining.
Setting this to INVALID. Please don't be discouraged. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to report this. And look forward to confirm your separate bug reports once they come in.
