frames in .docx file are not properly rendered in Writer

Import of MS DocX documents with frames is not correct.
Writer adds a border where there's none in MS Word.
Saving the same document as .doc in MS Word, and importing it in Writer is ok.
Comment 1 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-05-26 00:39:25 UTC
Well opening up the file in word 2007 has it as a textbox and not a frame, though LibO shows it as a frame.

Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-05-26 00:46:19 UTC
Tested the LibO rendering on the latest releases of 3.6 - 4.2 and 4.3 beta, with 4.3 being a regression of the so-called frame's location.

my reported LibO shape to frame bug 79289.
Comment 6 Joel Madero 2014-06-02 22:29:22 UTC
Removed bibisectrequest and regression as the regression seems to be different than the original report

Comment 8 jmgigandet 2015-06-08 14:57:20 UTC
Tested on (Os X 10.9 and Win 7 Pro 64).
Still the same issue.

Comment 10 Joel Madero 2016-01-01 21:34:40 UTC
Again removing bibisectRequest - please don't add it again to this bug. I explained why I removed it.

This bug pertains to the frame around the text box - the position of the box is a separate issue which should be reported separately. Please don't conflate issues as it just makes them hard to track and even harder to find a developer to tackle the issue.
