double spaces between footnotes opened in Writer

If I save a document (.docx) in Word 2013 and reopen it in Writer there seem to be some sort of double spaces (but there are no extra linebreaks) between the single footnotes. (example Test_footnote.docx)

If I add a footnote in Writer and save the document to reopen it in Word 2013 you will find these double spaces there, too. (Test_footnote_writer.docx)

Tested with

Also affecting me:

WRITER = LibO Version: Writer
Build ID: 420m0(Build:3)
OS = Ubuntu 14.04

WORD = MS Office Pro Plus 2010
Version 14.0.7116.5000 (32-bit)
OS = Win 7 Enterprise / SP1

Exactly as descripbe in #1 - and no way I can see (having spent considerable time on this) to remove the extra space manually. It would be good to know a work-around as an interim measure while awaiting a fix. Thanks.

Hi all,

Spacing in Sidebar seems wrongly set to 0.28 cm. 
Does this affect your documents if you set it differently?

Comment 4 Jacques Guilleron 2014-05-08 11:07:12 UTC

Actually, opening Test_footnote_writer.docx in LO, , I see:  Format > Paragraph >
Spacing > Below paragraph , 0,28 cm 
Line soacing > Proportional , 107%
One Footnote is made of 3 of these paragraphs. 

Could you be so kind to tell us which spacing is wanted in your settings, which unwanted?

Thank you,
