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.
Note item #3 in the image comparison. The picture is placed on the wrong side of the page.

Comparison of Doc in Word vs Writer
Image #3 is on the left side, when it should be on the right.
I can confirm this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.3 with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 RC.
WORKSFORME, please test with 22.214.171.124 and above.

correct image placement
Even in your attachment, image #3 is on the left-hand side. Please see my original comparison
to see that in MS Word, image #3 is placed on the right-hand side of the page. This issue should not be closed.
Sorry and true. I think I just looked at the bottom pic and compared that to what I saw. My bad.
Re-tested with 126.96.36.199 and updated whiteboard to Confirmed:188.8.131.52:OSX
184.108.40.206 latest nightly behaves identical.

Center lost with copy-paste
This issue appears to be related to the image itself. I created a new doc in Word 2007, added random text, inserted a non-transparent .jpg, and copied/pasted the image from "Demo-Hayden-Management.doc". I aligned the .jpg image right and the copied image center. LO only lost the format of the copy/pasted image from the original doc.
This issue is still present in
Build ID: 81898c9f5c0d43f3473ba111d7b351050be20261
Locale: es-ES (es_ES)
on Windows 7 (64-bit)
The import sets:
Horizontal: Left, by: 0, to: Paragraph area
According to Word, the correct values should be:
Horizontal: From left, by: 4.44", to: Paragraph area
Something is causing the "From Left" attribute to be read as "Left"
