Description pallavi.jadhav 2014-02-05 13:41:24 UTC
Created attachment 93448 [details]
Contains a Page Break on 1st page.

Isuue :
DOCX containing a Page Breaks Page Break is converted to Page Break Before after RT.

Expected behavior :
Break to Next Page should be preserved as it is and not as Page Break Before.
The XML tag <w:br> with value "page" shoul get prserved in the second paragraph.

Current behavior :
Break to Next Page is preserved as Page Break Before.
The XML tag <w:pageBreakBefore /> is getting written after RT in third paragraph.
