Sample document with the issue.

Attached source1.docx file shows incorrect shape particularly on the first page, it went out of page bounds.
The reason seems to be in the footer, because in the attached document the shape is overlapping the footer of the document.

I confirm "out of bounds" issue on and under Win7x64
Comment 6 Dominique Boutry 2014-02-23 09:44:59 UTC

The red drawing object in the first page header exceeds the page height, and extends on following page. I don't know if it is the expected behaviour.

For instance :
- in a NEW writer text,
- set the page height to 69.7 cm, zoom out to see it entirely,
- draw a rectangle of about 2 cm width 64 cm height,
- set back the page height to 29.7 cm,
- deselect the rectangle then type 2 hard returns, in order to fill 3 pages,
- observe that the rectangle extends on the 3 pages. Is it the expected behaviour?
- select the rectangle then "position and size": its height is 29,7 cm, consistent with page height (see bug 73453) but inconsistent with the effective drawing.

I confirm that there is a bug, but I can't explicit it without a better knowing of LibO specifications.
