Description Luke 2013-06-29 16:29:45 UTC
This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 RC1 running in windows 7 and XP. It appears that LibreOffice loses formatting when importing MS .docx files. I have attached an example.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.docx document in writer 
2. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.docx document in Word2007/Office 365
3. Compare the documents. 

Note from item #5 from the screenshot that the "west" line is missing.

I can confirm this tested using Windows 8 with LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 9bd0a976017fadf4344cbf6746abd395dfcc3cb7

Removing everything but table by copy/paste into fresh doc

I created a new doc and pasted the table into it. The result was the same. Interestingly, if you save the file as .odt and take a look at the content.xml, the missing row is still there in the XML.

-<table:table-row table:style-name="Table1.3"><table:covered-table-cell/>
-<table:table-cell table:style-name="Table1.B3" office:value-type="string"><text:p text:style-name="P2">East</text:p></table:table-cell>
-<table:table-cell table:style-name="Table1.C3" office:value
-type="string"><text:p text:style-name="P2">Approved</text:p>
