Description connie.deiss 2014-02-15 13:23:19 UTC
Linux Mint 15 Olivia / Cinamon 1.8.8
Kernel 3.8.0-19

There is a conversion issue between LibreOffice and MS Office.
Starting from an existing Windows MS Office .docx document.
Open it in Libre Office Version (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2))
Edit some words in the document.
At this time the document shows exact like it should.
Then the document is saved as docx.

When opening in MS Wort on Windows 7 the document shows:

- double linefeeds
- shifted spaces in table columns

Opening again in Libre Office shows NO double lines but still shows the shifted spaces in the table columns.
We found a workaround but that brings us back to MS Office.

The documents are edited in Libre Office. This can not be undone.
In Libre Office save in de older version .doc (MS Office 2007).
Then open in MS Office 2010 and save as .docx. If the document is opened
again the double linefeeds are gone and the table columns are ok.

Due to this issue we had to switch back to primarely using MS Word.
Please help.

Should be the same issue as discussed in bug 48350:
FILESAVE: missing <w:spacing w:after="0" w:before="0"/> in new document.docx (and other MSO 2010 formats)
