Description wojciech 2014-02-15 23:35:47 UTC
1. Insert an index entry at the beginning of a paragraph.
2. Save as *.DOC and exit.
3. Reopen the document. 
4. The paragraph break is deleted - next paragraph's text begins immediately after the previous paragraph's text

(When I first encountered the problem, the index entry was preserved; sometimes, however, it disappears too.)

It seems in the same domain than bug 69803, where the error does not happen all times, and there is no reproductible step-by-step from a NEW text document. Here too, I can't manage to reproduce it with LibO on Win7.
Comment 2 sophie 2014-02-20 14:14:17 UTC
I don't reproduce with version under Debian 6. Paragraph break and index entry are still present - Could you try with a newer version? Sophie

Dear wojciech,

I cant reproduce this issue with 4.1.6 or 4.2.5. Can you try any of the lastest versions to see if its still effecting you.
Comment 4 wojciech 2014-07-10 11:34:01 UTC
Yes, I can reproduce this issue with LibreOffice (Ubuntu 14.04, 64-bit). The paragraph break disappears and the index entry is deleted.
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-07-10 15:59:00 UTC

Is it possible for you to provide a sample .odt document which i can then test saving it to a .doc to show this error.

Thank you for the sample document. I can confirm that it works correctly in 3.3.0, but the earliest version that i could test that it is not working in is 3.5.7.

PreBibisect - updating version
Comment 9 bernie 2015-08-30 22:08:58 UTC
The problem persists in LO in an odt document.  Doesn't occur every time.  A document can look good and TOC and Index updated correctly and saved and closed.  But next time it is open paragraph breaks for some paragraphs may be gone and so may index entries for those paragraphs.

[This is an automatic message]

Changing version to in order to get rid of 'preBibisect' version as looks to be the last version not covered by bibisect-43all.
