Comment 2 pallavi.jadhav 2014-02-03 14:01:06 UTC
Yes, there is problem for both FILEOPEN and FILESAVE.
But I am working only on Export part. Hence created bug with FILESAVE issue only.

Comment 4 Jorendc 2014-03-19 10:01:38 UTC
I can confirm the column break with 1 column per page is preserved after roundtripping the file.

Tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: 87efec9cc27b18aa09e50c289b503ba1127eb0b8
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-03-18_02:50:50

I'll create a new bug report for the FILEOPEN part.

Thanks for fixing!

Kind regards,
