Created attachment 96634 [details]
One html file and two docx files saved by different LibreOffice versions

Problem description: Attached are two documents I have saved using LibreOffice. I have copied the contents from an html file (Black Viper’s Windows 8.1 Service Configurations).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Untitled1.docx has been created using LibreOffice V.
2. Untitled2.docx has been created using LibreOffice V.
3. ....

Current behavior:In my opinion, LibreOffice V. maybe a backstep as compared to LibreOffice V.

Expected behavior:

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: rc

Using Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon and LibreOffice (100% Linux machine) A friend sent me a CD with a password protected file written in Microsoft Word. The file on the CD was indeed password protected (I opened the file with LibreOffice Writer and tested it). I saved the CD file to my hard drive in odf format. Next I opened the file on my hard drive with LibreOffice Writer and all security was gone. I could type text or edit graphics at will.

My question is How could this happen? This is a very important issue as the file is a professional document that represent years of research and is copyrited.

Does it have something to do with saving a word file to odf format? Thank you for your help

Please note: I copied a password protected Microsoft Excel file from my laptop (Windows 7 machine) to my Linux hard drive. I opened the excel file using LibreOffice Calc and it was still password protected. I saved the file to odf format and it remained password protected. I have only seen this (Password protection removed) happen with writer.

Thank you

The initial bug report is a duplicate of 78818.

Regarding comment 1, please attempt the same issue with a currently supported version of LibreOffice like 4.1.6 or 4.2.4 and if you have the same issue, please create a new bug report for it, so we can look into the issue further. I have attempted the same thing of opening an encrypted .docx from word 2010 in LibreOffice 4.2.4 and when you decide to save the file as an .odt, it will prompt you to set a password.
