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 #5 in the image comparison. The footnote is not displayed correctly import.

Comparison of Doc in Word vs Writer
Note the missing footnote
For me the footnote is not MISSING completely, it is on the other page.
@Steve: ping :)

On another page
Tested using Mac OSX 10.8.3 with LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 RC. Footnote is on the next page, not on the right bottom of page 2. Still a bug off course, but not the same behavior as reported.
As noted in #60120 for the the entire document shows up rather broken when scrolling downward (LO 18.104.22.168, OS X 10.8.4).
That behavior isn't really reproducible. Just tried again after closing LO. Now it displays fine. Sorry, I don't have any more specific findings.
The missing text is pushed to the 3rd page in LO, most likely because of #66117 #66118 #66119 or #66120. Maybe we should close this, until those are fixed.
This has been previously reported. See for exemple
Bug 58521 - Endnotes always start on a new page,
but still not corrected.
Have a nice day,
Thanks Jacques for pointing out that this is a dupe.
